Harvard Law School Library’s East Asian law collection began at the turn of the twentieth century with occasional gifts from alumni and friends like Kaneko. Later, the Library established regular acquisitions with Japanese and Chinese book vendors and law schools. Following decades of focused collecting, along with financial support from the East Asian Legal Studies Program, The Harvard Law School’s East Asian law collection has become one of the best in the world.
