Kriegs Album: 22[-26] Sonderheft der "Woche". Five Volumes
Berlin: August Scherl, 1914. Berlin: August Scherl, 1914 Berlin: August Scherl [1914-1916]. 5 volumes. Profusely illustrated from photographs; text in German. 11½x8¾, cloth-backed boards. Extensively illustrated review of the German military during the early years of the Great War, selected from a German weekly. Well worn, contents toned at margins with some coming loose and chipping in places, just good, with one volume being better described as fair. Gripping collection of photographs - about three per page, cumulatively hundreds - taken by the German side during The Great War, with substantial preliminary text (in German) which is apparently of a war-diary nature, being organized chronologically by month and day. Profuse imagery is primarily from photographs of a diverse and captivating nature - including a plethora of portraits of aristocratic German officers - but does also include some sketches and some quite absorbing and very detailed maps as well. Vol. 22: 24 pp (text) + 183 pp (photographs); Vol 23: 39 pp (text) + 167 pp (photographs); Vol 24: 84 pp (text) + 151 pp (photographs) + ads; Vol 25: 55 pp (text)+ 150 pp (photographs) + ads; Vol 26: 109 pp (text) + 111 pp (photographs). Hardly replaceable as a WWI reference. lg5
