Abstract

This brochure accompanied an exhibit mounted to mark the donation to the University of South Carolina by the People’s Republic of China of an extensive collection of Chinese-language books and reference works, totaling more than 200 volumes. Most of the books displayed were drawn from the library of the original South Carolina College, chartered in 1801. Also displayed were books about China from the personal library of Charles Pinckney (1757-1827), governor of South Carolina, and author of the “Pinckney draft” of the U.S. federal constitution.
