About this Item

Dark blue cover with gilt title and spine decoration, color art portrait of a soldier with steel helmet laid in on front. 9x12.25, 463 pages, 14 fold-out plates of full-color war art (Koch, Grotemeyer, Heyer, Hersch, Kappstein, Hoffmann, Steglitz, etc.), 2 fold-out multi-color maps, numerous in-text photos, illustrations, and maps. Divided into four segments: the war on land, the war at sea, the war in the colonies, and the revolution in Germany. Cover has edge/corner wear and miscellaneous scuffs and rubs and some of the gilt imprint is dull. Interior pages were lower grade wartime paper a couple of steps above newsprint and noticeably age toned. Plates were on glossy stock and toned to ivory. Because of the large size, the inside edge of the folded plates were prone to being turned back when the facing page was closed. As a result most of the color plates have a creased inside corner (most are quite small, a couple are a bit larger but still minor and affecting only the margin). One plate was slightly misfolded in the center so that there is an unintended vertical crease through the plate and part of the bottom edge is soiled and ragged (only about .5 cm and does not affect the picture). Endpapers are clean, hinges are intact. Overall, great content and color plates: clean and sound with typical 80+ year old cover. Photos available via e-mail. Quite heavy and will require some extra postage, particularly to international destinations. Bookseller Inventory # 001480

Store Description

We have provided quality publications and collectibles to readers, collectors, and researchers since 1964. Moving entirely to Internet sales in 1996, we continue to specialize in historical military publications, documents, and military collectibles. A sizable inventory on non-military topics is also available and is (slowly) being added to our ABE listings. We actively purchase military unit histories, ephemera (documents, paperwork, photos, pretty much anything paper), war souvenirs from foreign wars, and general militaria (uniforms, insignia, helmets/headgear, medals, field gear, etc., etc.).
