Buddhism books coming

A significant collection of scholarly books on Buddhism, focusing particularly on Buddhism in China and Japan, has been bequeathed to the U.Va. library. The collection of 10,658 books, from Stanley and Lucie Weinstein of Hamden, Conn., is strong in 19th- and 20th-century publications on Buddhism, and also includes many books on other East Asian religions, as well as history, literature, art and related subjects.
