Books on Asian Art, History, Literature, Culture, Travel, Cooking

Thousands of books, including collector's items, will be available at bargain prices. Selections include books on Asian art, history, literature, religion, culture, cooking, travel, textiles, jewelry and more.

All books are donated by members and friends of the Society for Asian Art or the Asian Art Museum. All proceeds will benefit the Asian Art Museum’s C. Laan Chun Library.

Over the past decade, the sale of donated books has raised more than $100,000 for the Museum's library, one of the most extensive art libraries in the country.

This is a perfect way to obtain early presents for the holidays and get reading materials for the long winter evenings. Tell your friends about this one-of-a-kind book sale in San Francisco.
