This is a very, very rare example of a book of the law regarding the display and use of the Hoheitszeichen or Sovereign Emblems of Nazi Germany. It is owner-stamped with Farbdruckstempel (rubber stamp) number 12 from the Office of the Reichsstatthalter in the highest civil authority in the second largest city of Grossdeutschland (Greater Germany, Vienna. The Reichsstatthalter of Wien was Baldur von Schirach.
The extremely rare 8-1/4 x 11-3/4 inch, 52 page, heavily illustrated soft cover book is called Die Hoheitszeichen des deutschen Reichs (the Sovereign Emblems of the German State) and it was published for the Reichsministerium des Innern (State Ministry of the Interior) in 1939 by the State Publishing Office in Berlin. They did a great job!
The book is well-indexed to both the 28 pages of regulations in German Law that governed the size, shape, manufacture and display of any of the Hoheitszeichen or Sovereign Emblems of Nazi Germany, and to the 24 pages containing 12 full-color plates (they are blank on the back sides) of flags, pennants, seals, signs, helmet decals, visor cap and hat badges, etc.
The laws eliminating Jews from having anything to do with the Hoheitszeichen are quoted in full.
The artwork on the full-color plates is superb, and each item is referenced where necessary to sections in the text which further illuminate pertinent German law.
This was a special Ministry of the Interior publication, obvious printed for limited distribution to law enforcement agencies and officials at the highest levels.
We have never before been able to purchase an example of this book. This one belongs in a museum.
The general condition of this book is very good, with bright colors and clean text. There is a stamp of the Reichsstatthalter on the title page and another one on page 5, and there is an annotation on page 25 of the text in blue ink, but no text is obliterated. Plate 12 has three small pieces of scotch tape on it, but the printing is not defaced in any way. There are some small streaks on the front cover and the back cover has been replaced.
