5. Kenneth Rexroth Library. Kanda University of International Studies, Chiba, Japan.


Rexroth’s library had become so large in his later years that it occupied its own San Francisco apartment. After his death in 1982 the books were sold, and roughly half eventually ended up at Kanda University of International Studies on the eastern outskirts of Tokyo, where they are now held at the Rexroth Memorial Library. The collection includes many English-language works on Japan, many of these copiously annotated in Rexroth’s hand. Among hundreds of holdings in Japanese literature, religion, and history are perhaps half the works noted here in section D, ‘Sources of Influence and Transmission’.
