Johns Hopkins University French Avant-Garde ephemera collection

Identifier: MS-0448
Scope and Contents

The material is diverse, including engravings, drawings, posters, and medals, ranging from the 18th to the 20th century. Much of the collection is oriented toward the avant-garde, so even the 18th-century material tends to be literature of the margins. It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).

Dates: 1700s-1900s

Johns Hopkins University "May 1968" protests collection

Identifier: MS-0678

At the height of its fervor, it virtually brought the entire advanced capitalist economy of France to a dramatic halt. This artificially-created collection contains posters, protest leaflets, tracts, and photographs from these student protests in May 1968.

Dates: 1968
