New developments for Hanshan Tang. We are taking the first small step toward a major reconfiguration of our online services – granting, in the fullness of time, complete access to our stock on-offer, and providing all-online ordering and payment. As of the current list, we will no longer be publishing and mailing a printed catalogue.

For the moment pdf versions of our lists will be generated directly from our database of over 55,000 book records.
Please view and/or download the pdf of List 204 here.

Of necessity, this pdf version lacks illustrations and some of the niceties of our previous typeset versions, but it has all the information you will need to order from our stock. Where available, illustrations from selected books can be called up by searching the website in the usual way, with key terms from the item or by using the <item no>L<list no> format, for example: 26L202.

We are aware that our website is 'long in the tooth' and somewhat eccentric in its design and functionality, and yet, for a substantial period of internet history, it has served its purpose – to index and give access to currently featured stock items – efficiently (particularly in terms of speed), without frills, and without any of the potential intervening web-trend failures.

Nonetheless, we acknowledge that it is time to move on. Within the coming year, expect contemporary (or near-contemporary) web design and infrastructure, plus one of the now ubiquitous online shopping frameworks.

Regeneration and Ming Dynasty Colour-Printed Erotica

We are pleased and excited to be able to offer our customers two major new publications which have been produced under the auspices of our founder, Christer von der Burg. Regeneration was item 26/METP02 in our List 202, and Ming Dynasty Colour-Printed Erotica is item 17/VDBMD1 in the List 203. The linked images immediately below will take you to pdf versions of leaflets detailing these two magnificent, limited-edition publications.

We look forward to your orders.
 Regeneration     Ming 

In our area of expertise we stock antiquarian, new and secondhand books, and other documentation, in any language. Since we like to keep abreast of our field and because we are constantly buying high quality, scholarly libraries, we also have a strong stock of area and cultural studies titles for the region. We work mainly by mail order. You are welcome to our London offices, but are advised to make an appointment. We may not always be in, and we do warehouse some stock, so if there are things in which you are particularly interested, they may need to be fetched.
