Chater Collection

Bequeathed by Sir Paul Chater to Hong Kong after the 80-year-old philanthropist passed away in 1926, the Chater Collection is renowned for its oil paintings, watercolours, sketches, prints and photographs. Yet, the Collection also included a library of 54 rare books related to China, which Sir Cecil Clementi, Governor of Hong Kong from 1925 to 1930, presented to the University of Hong Kong in 1927. Most Chater books are nineteenth century titles and some of them have excellent illustrations. Selected titles from Chater Collection have been digitized for public access.
