About My Library
My library consists largely of books about China--art history, literature, and history. Other areas of interest are Korean art, the history of exotics (e.g., camphor, rhinoceros horn, incense, etc), Islamic art and some theology. I have a large number of Chinese books not yet entered yet here and, as for those already entered, one day I'll get around to correcting the input errors.
