Overview The Johns Hopkins University collection of vintage games and toys is an artificially assembled collection of materials purchased and selected by the curators of Special Collections. It spans from approximately 1825 to approximately 1956.

It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).
