Book News....

When shopping online it is wise to remember that old adage 'Fools rush in ...' and this is as true for vintage books as any other item. The book illustrated here is a useful case in point. As I have indicated in previous posts I have a modest collection of books relating to my research on Völkisch photographers including books produced by Heinrich Himmler's Ahnenerbe and their Dutch counterparts through the Uitgeverij Hamer. I am chiefly drawn by their use of photography as well as the identitarian or ethno-nationalist interpretations of mythlore, folklore, ethnology and art history. I came across this particular (Ahnenerbe) volume Kleine Kostbarkeiten aus Kunst und Geschichte (1940) on ebay
