The Arthur W. Diamond Library possesses one of the largest and broadest collections of international legal materials in the country, comprising more than 60,000 titles in the areas of public and private international law. This includes one of the best collections of United Nations and League of Nations legal documents in the country and a strong collection of European Union legal materials as well. In addition, the Law Library's foreign collections include more than 200,000 additional titles.   This includes the Toshiba Library for Japanese Legal Research, a collection of approximately 21,000 volumes that is one of the most comprehensive Japanese law collections outside of Asia. The library collects materials in almost all foreign jurisdictions, with particularly strong collections of the laws of the United Kingdom, Germany, France, South Africa, India, and Argentina, among others. The library also contains a large collection of rare legal materials, including nearly 30,000 volumes printed before 1860, and has an extraordinary manuscript and archival collection, ranging from a handwritten edition of Bracton from the 13th century through the papers of the late professor Telford Taylor.
