About us

Duplicates for Sale

From time to time the Ancient India & Iran Trust advertises duplicate books and periodicals for sale.  Many of these are rare and out of print.

We view this as a useful way of helping researchers and also of creating revenue. We have no dedicated income for purchasing current publications and the proceeds from book sales make a direct contribution towards keeping our collections up to date.

Our lists are as accurate as we have been able to make them in the limited time available, but each item is double checked before a sale is agreed. Publications are not priced but prices usually reflect what is available on the current market. Priority is given to individuals.

Detailed book lists will be available on this page. Please contact us if you are interested in further details, preferably by email, quoting the number at the beginning of each item and including the word “duplicate” in your subject line. Please also indicate where you would like the books to be sent so we can estimate the postal charge.

Payment may be made by direct bank transfer (details on application) or by credit or debit card via secure online payment.

Latest Duplicates List

Duplicates List: May 2024

This list contains over 950 titles which include many duplicates from the collections of: Mary Boyce (1920-2006), Professor of Iranian Studies at the SOAS; John Hinnells (1941-2018), Professor of Comparative Religion at SOAS; Ralph Pinder-Wilson (1919-2008); Josef Elfenbein, Professor of Iranian Philology at the University of Mainz and Anna Dallapiccola, (latterly, Honorary Professor, Department of Fine Art, Edinburgh University). The collection is therefore particularly strong in Iranian and art historical studies. The list also includes over 200 titles on South and South East Asia.

The list has been arranged very approximately in broad categories. Please contact us if you are interested in further details, preferably by email at library@indiran.org. Remember to quote the number at the beginning of each item that you're interested in. We update the list at regular intervals.
