New Online: Unique Collection of Censored Japanese Books (Library of Congress)

Library of Congress: New Online: Unique Collection of Censored Japanese Books. “The Library’s Asian Division has digitized an archive comprising more than 1,000 marked-up copies of monographs and galley proofs censored by the Japanese government in the 1920s and 1930s. The Japanese Censorship Collection reveals traces of an otherwise-hidden censorship process through marginal notes, stamps, penciled lines and commentary inscribed by the censors’ own hands.”
