The major Tibetan and Himalayan collections in France

Pascale Dollfus


To the best of my knowledge, there is no exhaustive inventory - computerized or on paper - of the "Tibetan and Himalayan collections" in French museums, private collections, libraries, universities and research centers. There is not even a simple list of the institutions in possession of the material objects, photographs, films, sound recordings, maps and manuscripts concerning these areas. Everything remains to be done, and it will be a colossal job, and a fitting homage to the collectors and above all to the populations evoked by these objects. The task is well worthwhile, and no doubt many discoveries lie in store.
