Cambridge Library Collection Book Launch

The Royal Asiatic Society is excited to announce the launch of the Cambridge Library Collection Series.

When: Thursday 20th February 6.30 pm
Where: 14 Stephenson Way, NW1 2HD. Nearest tube: Euston, Euston Square or Warren Street.

(Admission is free and all are welcome)

 The series results from collaboration between the Cambridge Library Collection and the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland. It reissues works from the Society’s extensive library of rare books and sponsored publications that shed light on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European responses to the cultures of the Middle East and Asia. The selection covers Asian languages, literature, religions, philosophy, historiography, law, mathematics and science, as studied and translated by Europeans and presented for Western readers.

The evening will include four short talks by Dr. Kate Brett, Ms Kathy Lazenbatt, Prof. Tony Stockwell and Dr. Gordon Johnson. There will also be a small exhibition of items from the RAS collection and a drinks reception.
