This is an excellent small hard cover book in English that is the supplement to the Official Catalog of the Exhibition of German Military Uniforms at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1900 as published for the Royal Prussian War Office by Giesecke und Devrient of Berlin and Leipzig. This is the photo supplement to the Exhibition Catalog and best of all it is in the English language.
The pictures in this book show all the figures that were exhibited with text that tells exactly which troops wore those uniforms and the places they were stationed.
The 83 figures and uniforms exhibited were shown in five groups and there are ten 7-1/4 x 11-3/4 inch fold-out plates showing the front and back of all the soldiers in each of those groups.
The second part of the book German Military Uniforms at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1900 consists of 82 full-page plates depicting individual soldiers in uniform from the displays, some mounted on horseback.
The covers of this 5 x 7-1/4 inch, 116 page book show considerable wear but the content itself is in very nice used condition. There are three single soldier plates in the book on which a previous owner has colored in parts of the uniforms with transparent watercolor paints, perhaps at the exhibition itself. A rare book on a very specific Imperial German subject.
The exhibition was mounted to show the development of the military uniform over the previous two centuries.
