This is a very good example of the rare 11-1/2 x 13-3/4 inch, 98 page stiff softcover book Die Nachkriegzeit 1918 - 1934 (The Postwar Years 1918 - 1934) as published by Zigarettenfabriken Eckstein-Halpaus and Waldorf-Astoria in 1935.
The 250+ color cigarette cards in this book each measure about 2 x 2-3/8 inches and include many images not found elsewhere in color or in black & white. The book is set-up to tell the story of world events as a backdrop to the growth and assumption of power in Germany of the Nazi Party under Adolf Hitler, on almost a day-by-day basis.
Beginning with an entry for 8 January 1918 the photos and text in this book cover the beginnings of the Nazi Party, its attempt to take over power in Munich, the economic crisis in Germany, the worldwide depression, the NSDAP campaign for control of the Reichstag (Parliament), the appointment of Hitler as Reichschancellor, the death of Hindenburg, the combining of the office of Chancellor and Reichspräsident, and the reclaiming of the German Saarland in 1935.
The photos include important historic events regarding the foundation of the Nazi Party, the occupation of Germany, Mussolini and his Fascists in Italy, the burning of the Reichstag, inprisonement of Hitler, the influence of American Jazz and the dollar, the rise of the Communists in Germany, the trans-Atlantic flight of Charles Lindbergh, Zeppelins, rocket car, new trains, Japanese expansion in Asia, etc., etc.
There are additional full- and half-page charts that clarify the impact on Germany of the Treaty of Versailles, the occupation of post-WW1 Germany, German colonies, etc. There is even a rare chart that shows each of Germany's 23 Chancellors from Bismarck to Adolf Hitler (something that history books of today like to avoid).
A very important groundwork on the founding and growth of the NSDAP in Germany in very good condition.
