Member of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the Deputy Director of the Committee of Historical Materials of the CPPCC, Mr Leo Tung-hai Lee, donated today (January 15) on behalf of the CPPCC, a collection of manuscripts documenting contemporary history of China to the Hong Kong Central Library (HKCL) and the Public Records Office.

In receiving the donation of the books, the Secretary for Home Affairs, Dr Patrick Ho said that the collection was one of the most important documentation on modern Chinese history and would be a great help for public's reference and research. He thanked the CPPCC for the donation and Mr Lee's arrangement.

The collection, which is in Chinese, consists of 26 volumes and 35 million characters, is recently published after fours years of massive research and editorial work. It covers contemporary history from the late Qing Dynasty to modern China.

The collection will be kept at the Reference Library of the HKCL and the Public Records Office located at Hong Kong Public Records Building, 13 Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong, Kowloon. It will be available for public reference from next Wednesday (January 22) after completion on classification.
