Third Reich DUDEN picture dictionaries
1938 Große Duden Bildwörterbuch (Big Duden Illustrated Dictionary)
Nazi uniforms, flags, collar tabs, insignia
Nazi weapons
If you collect militaria or read history of the Nazi period and are not familiar with the german language Große Duden Bildwörterbuch (Big Duden Illustrated Dictionary) of the Third Reich era, here is the best one we have ever seen! The "Duden" concept was pioneered by the Bibliografisches Institut AG of Leipzig and took the form of heavily illustrated right hand pages with comprehensive definitions on the opposite left hand page. The book has six full-page, full-color plates.

The sort of information available only in an illustrated Duden makes it possible to find out the correct Third Reich German name for virtually any item. The illustrations on page 255 show all the items of equipment used in mountain climbing and make it possible to find out that those little metal pieces around the edges of the sole of Gebirgsjäger mountain climbing boots are called Flügelnagel. How else would you know?
Duden Bildwörterbuch
The 75 year old Duden we offer here is a good example of the 5 x 7-1/4 inch, 796 page, 1938 edition containing thousands and thousands of individual illustrations like the ones shown here in our scans. The dictionary is divided into sections such as People & Home, Work & Professions, Free Time, Knowledge Research & Art, Belief, The State, Traffic, Trade, The Earth, Lands & Peoples, Plants & Animals, etc. Each of the sections is subdivided into many sub-sections so that there is even a page on barbershops, for example.
If you are interested in these subjects, there is no substitute for owning the German Duden Illustrated Dictionary. The only problem is that the Third Reich editions are nearly impossible to find these days. Here is your chance to buy the best one we have ever seen!

Comes with a facsimile dust jacket, professionally made from an original in our archive.
Der Große Duden - Rechtschreibung der deutschen Sprache und der Fremdwörter (The Correct Writing of the German Language and Foreign Words)

DER GROßE DUDEN RECHTSCHREIBUNG

We also offer Der Große Duden - Rechtschreibung der deutschen Sprache und der Fremdwörter (The Correct Writing of the German Language and Foreign Words) as published during the Nazi era by the Bibliografisches Institut AG of Leipzig in 1942. This is the 12th New and Expanded Edition using the Normalschrift (Times Roman) alphabet instead of old fashioned German lettering. The Normalschrift is far easier for people in the 21st century to read than the old fashioned Third Reich German typeface.

This example is the best example of the book we have ever seen. It measures 5 x 7-1/4 inches and has 690 pages.
This rare "Correct Writing" Third Reich era Duden is offered for sale
for $90.00 delivered by Media Mail in the continental USA.
