This "re-review" deals with the tourist guidebook of Prague, first published in 1881 and later as a reprint in 2002. In this discussion, the reviewer deals with both the structure of the period guide-book - including themes considered relevant for the tourist of the time as well as the book's attempt to present the city in the best possible light to visitors. Of particular interest is the guidebook's presentation of the array of nationalities (Czechs, Germans, Jews) living in the city. Although Czech and German communities had already become isolated from one another and the first violent conflicts had appeared when the guidebook was originally published, these issues were not reflected in the book. Rather, its author stubbornly worked to prove the age-long "Czechness" of Prague based on "historical facts." The reviewer finds equally surprising the book's effort to delete "German" traces in the history of Prague, such as omitting information on Mozart's visits to the city.
