Lists of Books available in the Libraries of Army Headquarters, the United Service Institution, or the Survey of India have been circulated to members separately.

The Committee of the Club is making every effort to allot as much money as possible for the purchase of books, but it is hoped that purchases will be liberally supplemented by presentation copies. It is also hoped that all author members who have not already done so will present copies of their publications, and that those members who can spare books of Himalayan interest from their own libraries will remember that used copies are not less welcome than new.
