Our in-house Library

Many books on Asian, Islamic, Colonial & Tribal art and antiques have been published. We have a large library of such books in our gallery in central London.

The list below comprises the books we keep on our premises for our research.

We do NOT sell books; this list has been developed to serve as a resource for our clients only. We do however recommend visiting World Art Now, a related site dedicated to the promotion of niche books on art & culture.

The book titles in our library are below and are organised by region and subject.
