I 2003." 253 pp., including illustrations. Excerpt from an English translation of a description by bookseller Jan Sookhylla: "The idea behind the title is to demonstrate, via essays such as 'Schene Rarity' with its uncanny insights into the previously unknown Swedish anti-Semitism during the 1840s-1860s, how in the dark room of history evidence can be produced that no one thought existed. Most of the essays in this book have something of this source status about them, because they document conditions that have not been noticed before. At the same time, several of them show the cultural transparence and obviousness with which the motifs were once adopted by contemporaries and the difficulty we have today in reconstructing these figures of thought." Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
