Illustrierte Geschichte des Weltkrieges
(Illustrated history of the world war)
A large format German WW1 9 volume book set about
the events and progress of WWI from 1914-1919
Profusely illustrated history of the first World War from the German viewpoint.
The value of these books lies in the illustrations, photos and sketches !!
This is the rare COMPLETE series of 9 volumes in good condition, German Text.
You maybe can find some of the first volumes of this book set. You hardly see volumes 6-9.
Again, this is now the complete book set vol 1-9 !!!!
4,150 pages, with approx. 5700 illustrations, 200+ multi color art plates, 300+ maps and schemes
Approx/Measurements of each Book: 12-3/4" x 10";
Total weight about 42 lbs.!
I would rate them as good overall for this ~100 year old books.
Luckily these volumes are all sewed, which means no rusty staples for you :-)
Modest wear to boards/spine/corners/edges.
Foxing, mainly to margins and first and last pages; more or less intense.
I've roughly flipped through the books, there is no indication of missing pages.
But I can not check each single page of the total of more than 4000 pages,
as this would require several hours of work.
A very remarkable book set of WW1 !!!!!
Published by UDV, Stuttgart, Berlin, Leipzig, Wien ~1915-1921
Many wwi photo prints inside the books !!
Photos also show action and destruction and the cruel circumstances during the war.
With contributions from Baron v. Ardenne, P. Bernoulli, W. Bloem,
Frobenius, Haller, A. Semerau, J. Gehrts, G. H. Hänel, W. Moralt.
