About this title


Written by leading East Asia specialists, librarians, and scholars, Collecting Asia offers a fascinating look at the founding and development of twenty-five of the major East Asian libraries in North America. This unique volume provides us with a look at the events and people that shaped these collections. Through carefully documented histories, we are introduced to the pioneering figures-from collector-explorers to scholar-librarians-who were instrumental in bringing books and artifacts from Asia to North America. This history of acquisition provides remarkable insight into our cultural legacies. "This extraordinarily important volume provides us with a unique look at the events and people that shaped the major collections of East Asian materials in North America. . . Richly illustrated and engagingly written, Collecting Asia will appeal to scholars, librarians, students, and anyone with an interest in Asia and the history behind these important collections." (Martha Ann Selby, University of Texas at Austin).
