Library: the André Leroi-Gourhan collection

The integration of the André Leroi-Gourhan collection into the EFEO library is now achieved!After the inventory and reporting of the archives, and the cataloguing of all the monographs (Sudoc), all the periodicals in this collection have been inventoried and catalogued.

The collection of periodicals in the Leroi-Gourhan collection includes 30 titles, the most complete of which are 民俗藝術 Minzoku geijutsu  and  工藝 Kōgei, a publication co-edited by Yanagi Muneyoshi, the specialist in folk arts and "mingei studies". This monthly journal, with a print run of only 1000 copies, devoted to craftsmanship, materials and tools used in the making of objects, is rare and precious.
