The National Theatre has published a book marking the 150th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of a building, which is not just a theatre temple of the Muses, but also the result of a multiyear endeavour for Czech national self-awareness. New documentary photographs of the foundation stones, historical pictures of the ceremony of the laying of the foundation stone and other momentous events, as well as minor episodes, highlight the symbols linked with the very beginnings of the National Theatre.
