About this Item

4to. 752pp. Original black cloth with gold-stamped knight's cross of the order and gold lettering on spine. Work contains the history of the Militär-St. Heinrichs-Orden (Military Order of St. Henry) as well as listing all the recipients of the order in alphabetical order. The military order of the Kingdom of Saxony in the German Empire was founded on October 7, 1736 by Augustus III, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony. It underwent several revisions during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The order came in for classes: Großkreuz (Grand Cross), Kommandeurkreuz 1. Klasse (Commander's Cross 1st Class), Kommandeurkreuz 2. Klasse (Commander's Cross 2nd Class), sometimes just Kommandeur and Ritterkreuz (Knight's Cross). It became obsolete with the fall of the Saxon monarchy in the wake of Germany's defeat in World War I. Famous recipients of the Großkreuz include Generalfeldmarschall Paul v. Hindenburg, General Ludendorff, Kaiser Wilhelm II (King of Prussia) and König Ludwig III. von Bayern. Illustrated with 16 pages in rear depicting the various orders (medals), König Albert von Sachsen, König Friedrich August III. von Sachsen and a photographic reproduction of a painting depicting Friedrich August II., Kurfürst zu Sachsen. Text in German, gothic script. Minor scuffing and staining on cloth. Binding in very good, interior in near fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 34171
