Le Plongeon 1896 Nordau 1896


Archaeology, Discovery, Heterodoxy, Degeneration

    Remarks that it will be 'interesting to see how the scholars take Dr. Le Plongeon's discoveries, which are sufficiently momentous and astonishing in all conscience, buttressed up as they are by a mass of evidence from old inscriptions'. Reminds readers that these discoveries have already been 'described at considerable length [...] in the Review of last September' [see RR1/12/3/22]. (564) Also notes that the 'Nordau "boom" has rather worked itself out' (565).
