The RSAA’s library reflects the interests of the Society both geographically and chronologically. The main collection consists of over 5000 books covering Asia from Turkey to Japan. Most of these books relate to Asia since the beginning of the 20th Century and deal with history, geography, politics and travel.
The collection includes a small number of biographies and books on the religions of Asia. Those books relating to Central Asia are shelved separately, reflecting the origins of the Society as the Central Asian Society. Some of the books in this section date from the second half of the 19th century.
