We are pleased to announce that The Annual Auction of Antique Books, 2023 (古典籍展観大入札会), organized by Tokyo Kotenkai, will be held once again this year at the Tokyo Kosho Kaikan!
The Annual Auction of Antique Books follows a silent/blind bid format, where the highest bid at the conclusion of the auction determines the successful bidder.
Prior to the auction, we invite everyone to attend a pre-auction viewing on Friday, November 17th, and Saturday, November 18th. This special viewing allows you to marvel at the extraordinary collection of valuable cultural materials and exquisite works of art that will be exhibited. No reservation is required, and admission is free. Feel free to join us at your convenience.
