Special Collections

Bunce Collection Amatory and Erotic Works

Fredrick W. Bunce, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Art, donated the materials in the Bunce Collection in 1996. Dr. Bunce established the collection of material that provides examples of both community standards on suggestive or explicit materials and of the nature of earlier and turn-of-the-twentieth-century erotic or pornographic art and books, including some on sexual fetishes or variant lifestyles. Many such works were privately printed and contain illustrations, some quite tame by modern standards but considered scandalous by polite society at the time they were created. Additional holdings include critical, historical, anthropological materials as well as Bunce notes and research.
