Mr. Widener asserts that Morris Cohen was an artist, that book collecting was his art, and that his masterpiece is the Juvenile Jurisprudence Collection, a collection of law-related children’s books that Cohen donated to the Yale Law Library in 2008. He argues that libraries and individual collectors should emulate this style of collecting, and that the art of collecting is important to law libraries and legal studies.
