"Anarchy" collection

This collection on the history of anarchy proves particularly rich. These archives, Belgian and foreign newspapers, books and magazines come for the most part from donations by Walther Théodore Glineur, a Brussels cobbler who was an anarchist for some of his life and who collaborated to the activities of the World Palace, and by Marcel Dieu, a scholarly anarchist best known under the name Hem Day. Many collaborators of the Mundaneum, including Georges Lorphèvre, continued to enrich the collections. The origin of some documents may be difficult to determine.

The whole represents 9 metres of documents dating from 1839 to 2000.
