History / Biographical Note
Biographical / Historical
The Ephemera collection on Chinese science, technology, law, and society was collected by Don Jonathan Cohn during his career in China. Most of the materials came from dealers in China which had connections with educational and governmental institutions and libraries, as the materials were at one point discarded by the former owners and institutions. The collection was purchased by the C.V. Starr East Asian Library in 2017.
