Chapter Summary

As a student of medieval history at the University of Tokyo concentrating on scholarly research published in the nineteenth- and earlytwentieth- centuries the author finds in his library the collection entitled "Liebermann Bunko" - that is, the personal library of the great Anglo-Saxon legal historian Felix Liebermann. This collection contains Liebermann's research materials, articles written by him, and even annotations in a copy of his great masterpiece, Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen. The fact that this collection resides in the Library of the University of Tokyo ( LUT) is not well-known outside Japan. This chapter presents some features of the Liebermann Library. It addresses the following 1) How his library came to Japan; 2) The history and methodology of its classification; 3) The contents of the library and, especially, the characteristics of annotations displayed in Liebermann's personal copy of Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen.
