THIS RESEARCH IS STILL VERY USEFUL TO THE COLLECTOR WHO NEEDS TO WEED OUT THE FORGERIES * KNOWLEDGE OF GERMAN IS NOT ESSENTIAL BECAUSE WITH AN INTERNET TRANSLATOR (ie BABEL FISH) YOU CAN TRANSLATE THE FEW ESSENTIAL TERMS YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE CLUES THAT DISTINGUISH GENUINE FROM FORGERY
**
LIMITED EDITION **

EXPECT: Research that was compiled in 1937 *

EXPECT: Good production with printing quality based on an original that was produced 75 years ago *

ON THE WHOLE THIS IS A VERY GOOD AND MOST USEFUL REPRINT, IF YOU ARE VERY DEMANDING PLEASE KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND:

DO NOT EXPECT 2011 photography: DO NOT!! (some of the original photography is a bit problematic and the publisher has done his best to improve it – but he is not yet capable of performing miracles) ~~~

DO NOT EXPECT: state-of-the-art typographical and lay-out quality in a reprint of a 1937 monograph – if those are your expectations do not buy or criticize this reprint unless you have actually produced a better one (it won’t be easy!!) ~~~

BEING THE EARLIEST DETAILED RESEARCH ON THE SUBJECT MATTER, THE VALUE OF THIS BOOKLET IS ESSENTIALLY ITS GREAT BIBLIOGRAPHIC RELEVANCE *

LIMITED EDITION *** NOT TO BE MISSED!!!

ESSENTIAL BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCE FOR THE SERIOUS COLLECTOR
