    Catalog of the Glenn Shaw collection at the East-West Center Library
    (Honolulu, HI : East-West Center, 1967) Arai, Hirotake ; Gibu, Morio
    The library of the late Glenn Shaw is a representation of the taste of a discriminating Western scholar of Japanese life and literature. The collection contains several hundred reference books and other materials in Japanese, Chinese and English language on Japanese literature and history. Glenn Shaw's great interest in the Japanese language is shown by the very many expensive sets of Japanese dictionaries. The sets of reference books in Japanese include the leading biographical and historical sources and encyclopedias. In Japanese history and literature, the emphasis is on the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, a period in which Glenn Shaw took exceptional interest.
