He who destroyes a good Booke, kills reason itselfe: an exhibition of books which have survived Fire, the Sword, and the Censors

In 1955, Robert Vosper of the University of Kansas Libraries put together what would become an internationally recognized exhibit of materials that have been banned and/or censored. This catalog of the exhibit explains why each item was of concern in its time, and includes images of many. Works date from the 1500s to mid-1950s.
