Reprint of the 1924 first edition which was published in Tokyo by the Oriental Library (Besterman 1329). The Morrison Library was the crystallization of many years efforts attributed to G. E. Morrison, adviser to the President of China, and former Peking correspondent of The Times, London, who collected almost all available books and records with particular reference to China and its adjacent countries up to 1917. Included are books dealing with Central Asia and Siberia, with Japan, Siam, Indo-China and the Straits and a few on the Philippines. The volumes are organized by language, part one containing books in English and part two books in other languages. Within each volume the organization is alphabetical. Besterman cites 20,000 printed items for this catalogue.
