Takei Collection

This is an incomplete list of compositions in the Morishige Takei collection at the Kunitachi College of Music in Tokyo, Japan. It was compiled by Jiro Nakano. The Takei collection is not publicly accessibly to my knowledge, nor has it been fully catalogued. After Takei’s death it was in the custody of at least one other person during which time portions may have been mixed with other collections. Takei also had a large amount of mandolin music in his possession. I doubt that this list represents the total of his guitar collection. One thing to remember though is that Takei lost nearly all of his collection due to fires caused by the great Kanto earthquake in 1923, though his rebuilt collection mostly survived other fires caused by air raids on Tokyo during World War II.
