This is the bookshop of the School of Oriental and African Studies in Bloomsbury, run by Arthur Probsthain Oriental and African Bookshop. It is at the entrance to the Brunei Gallery building near Russell Square and is open to the public.
It is a small one room shop with books on expected SOAS subjects like Africa, China, India, Islam, etc. It also has language books like English-Sanskrit dictionaries and SOAS course packs.
secretlondon saw the sign and wandered in one Monday evening. The outside is full of course packs. I wasn't sure what those were (photocopied articles maybe?) and I don't know if they would have sold one to me. The inside is full of new books. The ones I looked at were about £20 which may be the norm in this specialist area.
