University of Otago’s Emeritus Professor Colin Gibson (b. 1933) is an expert on Chaucer and hymnology but has wider research interests in many literary genres. He is a lay preacher, an organist and choirmaster, and is an internationally renowned writer of hymns. In December 2017, in a bid to have a ‘clear out’, Gibson gifted his Erotica and Folio Society Collections to Special Collections. There are over 1000 volumes, and at this stage, about three-quarters of them have been catalogued. This volume, on display, highlights Eastern erotica.
