ABIA Online

Index of South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology

The ABIA ( Index on South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology) goes back to 1928 and is well-known among specialists as the only comprehensive and up-to-date standard bibliographic reference in the field, serving both students and scholars. The online version of the complete ABIA includes all twenty-three volumes of the Annual Bibliography of Indian Archaeology, and its successor the ABIA Index. The ABIA is updated on a quarterly basis and c. 9,000 new records are be added each year. This unique specialist academic in-depth bibliography is dedicated to South and Southeast Asian and covers the areas of: prehistory, archaeology of the historical period, art, crafts and architecture, inscriptions and palaeography, and coins and seals from the region. Through strong partnerships in Asia, the coverage includes unique references to literature published in the region, which is often very hard to identify and access. The ABIA Online presently cooperates with partner institutes in New Delhi (the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts) and Colombo ( The Postgraduate Institute of Archaeology) and is partly supported by the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) and the Jan Gonda Fonds.
Frits Lugt's Répertoire is one of the most widely consulted art historical reference works and lists more than 100,000 art sales catalogues of the period 1600 to 1925 from libraries in Europe and the USA.
The impressive four-volume work Répertoire des catalogues de ventes publiques intéressant l’art ou la curiosité ("Repertory of Catalogues of Public Sale concerned with Art or Objets d'art") by Frits Lugt (1884–1970) contains bibliographic descriptions of auction catalogues. The catalogues are arranged in strict chronological order and provide meticulous details of auctions, as well as recording annotations written in the catalogues. Lugt also indicates the library where the catalogue may be consulted.
This online edition of Lugt's Répertoire covering the period 1600-1900, increases the value of the rare original work as it provides a multitude of search options. Many recently discovered catalogues have been added and corrections to the original work have been made. The database can be consulted both in French and in English.
The online edition of Lugt’s work for the period 1600-1900 is a separate database but at the same time the “entrance gate” to Brill's publication Arts Sales Catalogues Online (ASCO).
