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.
