History: Perspectives and ResourcesFrom time to time, I encounter in my research intriguing or bizarre items with more than trivial relevance that I feel I should share.

Since I am a Europeanist, specializing in Germany since the 18th century and environmental history, you will find the emphasis there. After each document, I provide a brief description, commentary and suggestions for further reading.
