    Epub William L Bird Jr #230; #230; Souvenir Nation Epub #234; souvenir pdf, nation download, Souvenir Nation PDF/EPUBAfter reading Lafayette in the Somewhat United States and hearing a mention of the Souvenir Nation exhibit at the Smithsonian I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there was a book to commemorate it I do like that as humans we feel compelled to take away a bit of something historic to remember it bythough some people took it to kind of a crazy extent here stowing away branches from the ivy growing on Washington's house I did love the revelation that souvenir shops were in part a reaction to people carving away bits and pieces of historical objects and items so that they could take away something without destroying the exhibit

    Epub William L Bird Jr #230; #230; Souvenir Nation Epub #234; souvenir pdf, nation download, Souvenir Nation PDF/EPUBAfter an introduction c40pp that gives a capsule history of the Smithsonian and of collecting historical relics as souvenirs presents 50 objects from the museum's collections in facing page descriptions and photographs What I particularly liked about the volume is that the tone replicates the uncomfortable attitude of historians and professional scholars towards such relics while also giving them fair coverage and due respect Those with casual interest will still find the photos and descriptions interesting but the introduction while quite readable will likely be of most interest to serious students of material culture collecting and the minutiae of history

    Epub William L Bird Jr #230; #230; Souvenir Nation Epub #234; souvenir pdf, nation download, Souvenir Nation PDF/EPUBThis is a wonderful short read on the subject of the souvenir and relic in American culture Though this notion is a European one America because it's history was unfolding when the notion was at it's height has a distinct relationship with it This book provides great photos of both little known and highlighted artifacts in the Smithsonian Institute's collection Each photo is accompanied by a blurb about the significance of the object speculation upon it's authenticity and a bit about provenance A very interesting short read for the museum hound the art aficionado and American history buff in me

    Epub William L Bird Jr #230; #230; Souvenir Nation Epub #234; souvenir pdf, nation download, Souvenir Nation PDF/EPUBThis book highlights some of the souvenirs that people have donated to the Smithsonian through the years Though some items seem trivial such as pebbles or pieces of Roman mosaics some are of great historical impact like the chairs Lee and Grant sat in to hammer out the terms of surrender at AppomattoxLoaded with illustrations this book is informative for the history buff particularly for the forward in which we learn how museums came to be and the history of America's museum the Smithsonian Institution

    Epub William L Bird Jr #230; #230; Souvenir Nation Epub #234; souvenir pdf, nation download, Souvenir Nation PDF/EPUBRather bland collection of items from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History Exceptions include the dishtowel used as a white flag of truce by a confederate soldier before Lee and Grant met to end the Civil War and a stone from the dungeon of Joan of Arc More interesting is the chapter on the history of artifacts and souvenirs in American culture
