Our bi-monthly catalogues are also available for download as pdf (portable document format) files from the web site.

Our last regular list, number 187, was posted 13 Feb 2017; please scroll down if necessary to show the link.

Please note: the links below should trigger downloads of approximately 1-3 Mb each for the main lists.

At the request of a number of customers, from list 122 on we have made two regional-interest subsets of the main list available in pdf form - a Japanese interest sublist, and a list of items that are not primarily China- or Japan-related (i.e. Korea, SE Asia, Central and South Asia, etc.) The item numbers in these lists are the same as the item numbers in the main list. Please use these numbers when ordering. Note that these lists do not have all the editorial niceties of the main list.
