In Japan, there are many unavailable collections of musical sources (musical notes, books on music, etc.). Of primary consideration is the Nanki Music Library, founded by Marquis Yorisada Tokugawa (1892-1954) in Azabu-Iikura, Tokyo in 1918, which includes autographs of Beethoven, Liszt, and other composers. The Nanki Music Library was the first public musical library in Japan and actively collected many rare musical sources from throughout the world, such as the bibliotheca of William Hayman Cummings (1831-1915), a British music educator. The Library was closed to the public in 1931 due to financial difficulty of the Tokugawa family; nevertheless, international attention has remained focused on the collection.
