This article traces the history of French publishing houses in Asia in order to highlight their involvement in the emergence of Francophone communities among cultures classified as non-Francophone. It aims to examine the origin of French publishing houses from their initial appearances in Asia, the history of the publishing houses founded by religious communities in various cities in Asia, as well as the nature of books they publish will be studied. Next to be examined is the secular milieu, with the arrival of the first chain of publishing houses that fall within professional editorial organizations. The case of Albert Nachbaur and Georges Bigot will be examined as a prototype. This brief look at French publishing in Asia invites the reader to consider future discussions of other partners involved: members connected to book networks, such as the French Alliance, whose libraries cover major cities in Asia. This article is only an initial clarification on the networks/movement of French books in Asia.
