The Giant Library of Prague Castle

Picture

A mystery has been on the internet since 2013, and it revolves around the above image. This photograph, attributed to M. Peterka ca. 1940, seems to lack all provenance.
One day an image of a man (or woman) kneeling in front of a giant book simply appeared.
Though the image is often said to have come from the Archives of Prague Castle, the Librarian Shenanigans blog has chatted with the head archivist there who claims it is not from their archives.
