Catalogue of Manning's Books in RAS Library

Scope and Content

Thomas Manning's Chinese book collection was donated to the RAS Library after his death. However his books were added to the general Chinese collections. At some point, there has been an attempt to identify those in the collection which had belonged to Manning. This series consists of two catalogues, some notes on Manning and one later letter. The majority of the Chinese book collection in the RAS was donated to the Brotherton Library, Leeds, in 1963.
