Melliand Textilberichte 1936 German Textile Industry Trade Periodical Lot x 6Brian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(Old Magazines, Early 20th Century Magazines, German Magazines, Textile Industry, Illustrated Magazine, Period Advertisements).
Published monthly, Heidelberg by Marcel Melliand.
6 issues, each c. 300 pages. Text in German. Profusely illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated and graphically striking (art deco) advertising as well, often pictorial.
Nice lot of 6 pre-WWII German technical magazines with pleasing visual content. Issues included in this lot: March, August, September, October, November, & December 1936
Bindings remain clean, tight, and sound, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Overall a nice looking lot.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, edge chipping, small light old staining, etc. Overall entirely acceptable example of what is likely a scarce survival. The pictures give a very good sense of how the item survives.
Virtually all periodicals of this era are somewhat scarce today as loose complete issues. Like most random survivals of old periodical printing, any specific example (like this one) is likely among a relative handful still extant. As each decade goes back from 1950, the rate of scarcity for any specific magazine or paper item increases noticeably.
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Magazines remains attractive on the shelf. Lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique lot survives. This lot is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
Magazines Measure c. 11 3/4" H x 9 1/2" W.
