The bookshop that is now known as Asia Bookroom was established in 1969. At that time Barbara Burdon, mother of present owner Sally Burdon, established Weekend Gallery Books in Australia’s capital city Canberra.
A chance buy at a local auction was the catalyst. Barbara and her husband Tom were attending the auction with the hope of buying some prints and maps for their personal collection. During the viewing they had also looked at the books that were to be sold. They saw a fine library of mainly Chinese history, literature and reference. Although their intention was only to bid on a few lots of books for personal interest, by the end of the auction almost all of the books offered were theirs!
Since that auction over 50 years ago now, the business has grown and changed. Sally joined the business in 1982 and worked with Barbara for nearly 40 years before Barbara’s death in 2013.
The business dramatically changed in the early 2000s when the name was changed to Asia Bookroom and only stock of Asia interest was kept. Thanks to the internet's global reach Asia Bookroom now sells to customers all over the world including to many people in China.
A combination of Asia Bookroom’s website www.AsiaBookroom.com and regular email lists sent to their mailing list, featuring new arrivals on China and other parts of Asia, means Asia Bookroom’s books are sent to a worldwide clientele.
