BYU Japanese Rare Books

When the Harold B. Lee Library purchased 255 Japanese rare books and manuscripts from San Francisco book dealer David Magee as part of a larger acquisition, no one imagined just how unique the collection would be. Spanning from the eighth to the early twentieth century, it includes early examples of printing in Japan, rare maps, and one-of-a-kind scrolls and manuscripts.
