Rare books of explorers in Asia at Indosiam

Few days ago I literally bumped into this great book store, Indosiam. The owner, Mr Azémar, will be glad to guide you through his unique collection of rare books and prints on Asian countries and former French colonies. 

He has started ten years ago and he still has the only book shop of this type in the busy Hong Kong. If you like travel and exploration, history, geography, ethonology, art, and archeology, this amazing place is worth your time. The shop is at 89 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong.


Rare books for people fond of Japan


Libri dall’Asia is the library anyone interested in Asia, should know.
Today I’m going to talk only about the Japanese collection of Mario Rossello.
If you like Japanese culture you can look up to a huge amount of books, written in in European languages or Japanese also, concerning many aspects of Japanese life by clicking here : art, theatre, philosophy and religion, history and society, linguistics and so on. You can even find rare dictionaries.

The titles you will find there are usually limited edition and out of print books, but still unique pieces.
