The year 1937 was the 50th anniversary (1887-1937) of the company and they put together this splendid illustrated price list for their catalog to celebrate the event. The 134 page catalog lists the things they had to sell in large type with category photos and all sorts of detail including caliber, size, manufacturing materials, etc., but most importantly, the selling price in Reichsmarks.
One of the most amazing aspects of the catalog is the minutia contained in the listings. On page 67 for example, they list enlisted men's swords, officer's swords, officer swords with lion heads and red eyes, Luftwaffe officer's daggers without the hanger, Luftwaffe officer's daggers with the hanger, bayonets in two lengths with and without antler grips, fire department bayonets in two lengths, fire department bayonets with a saw on one side, fire department swords, Hitler Youth daggers, etc. Virtually every product is broken down into every available style that was offered.
This 80 year old book is complete and in very good used condition, no odor. It should be considered fundamental for a Third Reich research library or an advanced collector of both military and civilian weapons, field gear and associated material.
