Episode 43. Nadia Ait Said-Ghanem: Iraqi antiquities dealers of 19th century: Show notes

Nadia discusses her work on the Iraqi antiquities market of the late 19th and early 20th century. She focuses on two remarkable figures from the trade. Ibrahim Gejou was perhaps the most significant dealer used by European and American collectors. Ferida Antone Shamas was is less-known, but a fascinating character. Who were they? What was their role in the trade? And what was their motivation?
