The Georgia Antiquarian Booksellers Association (GABA) is a trade association of antiquarian booksellers located throughout the state of Georgia. Our members specialize in fine and rare books, maps, documents, autographs, illuminated manuscripts, ephemera and prints which span the economic spectrum. We are united in a passion for books and related material and have bound ourselves to a Code of Ethics which guides us in our dealings with each other and our clients. 

Each year GABA sponsors a rare and antiquarian
book fair, generally in the Atlanta area.  Many hundreds of collectors, librarians and scholars enthusiastically anticipate and attend each year.

Regular membership meetings are held quarterly each year.
From time to time GABA publishes a Newsletter with trade-related stories, book reviews and other interesting tidbits. Our website, www.gaba.com, has a continually updated directory of members and their specialties.

Smythe Books

Jim Strawn is the classic example of a person taking a passion – in his case a penchant for collecting books – and turning it into a business in retirement.  In October, 2006, Jim, then age 65 and a former finance chief in the radio industry, along with his wife, Judy, opened their own store, Smythe Books, in Dunwoody, Georgia.
