In 1907 when David Scott Mitchell bequeathed his collection to the State Library of New South Wales (then known as the Public Library of New South Wales) to form the Mitchell Library, it included a small component of erotica, both print and realia. After the Mitchell Library opened in 1910, this material was separated from Mitchell’s bequest and housed separately. The collection became known as the David Scott Mitchell Collection of Erotica. As there is no evidence that David Scott Mitchell kept a separate collection of erotica or bequeathed his erotica material separately to the Library, it was decided that items from Mitchell’s bequest should not be maintained as a separate collection.
Provenance of item derived from a list of material compiled by Professor W.M MacCallum (President of the Library Trustees) on the 1st April 1910.
