Title: Digitized Chinese Rare Books from the James Legge Collection at The New York Public Library
Author: The New York Public Library
Abstract: This digital presentation offers a glimpse into The New York Public Library's (NYPL) James Legge Collection of rare Chinese books. This collection of 230 titles, amassed by noted nineteenth-century missionary-scholar James Legge (1815-1897), was acquired by the Library in 1909, at which time it formed the basis of the NYPL's Chinese language rare book collection. As part of a NEH-funded project to catalog the Library's collections of rare Chinese books and make them more accessible, six titles from the Legge Collection were digitized and are available here via NYPL’s Digital Gallery.
