  • ALBUM – THIRTY-THREE PHOTOGRAPHS – DIAGRAMS – 1. GARDE-REGIMENT zu FUß – PRUSSIA

    SKU: 12-677

    $95.00

    This is a very interesting soft cover album that measures 9 1/4″ x 6.” It celebrates THE most elite German infantry regiment, the 1. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß (1.GRzF). This elite regiment was founded in 1688. It was garrisoned at Potsdam. It is where König Frederick the Great built his castle, Sanssouci, and where many of the most elite Prussian Garde-Regiments (including the Regiment der Garde du Corps) were based. Most of the regiment’s officers came from German royalty and nobility, as was the case with the Regiment der Garde du Corps. No regiment in the German Army has more à la suite officers than 1.GrzF. In the 1914 Rangliste, twenty plus à la suite officers are mentioned. All princes of the House of Hohenzollern were automatically enrolled in the regiment. Kaiser Wilhelm II’s six sons and his brother’s two boys accounted for eight of the regiment’s à la suite officers! Other high-ranking royals also belonged to the regiment. Another token of the high esteem in which the regiment was held was its headdress style. They were one of two regiments to wear a mitre for high dress occasions. Our album sports a simple brown cover. The pages are held together by an equally simple, string binding. [The cover is a bit fragile, so we suggest care when looking through the album. Perusing it on a flat surface, which places less strain on the covers and binding, will help preserve it all the more]. A brief history of the regiment from 1740 through 1871 begins the account. The next pages depict the history of uniforms and headdress from 1704 through 1845 (the soldier in 1845 models an early pickelhaube). Progressive paintings show the regiment in action during the Napoleonic War in 1813, the 1866 Austro-Prussian War of, and the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian War. A later photo, which dates from the late 1880’s or early 1890’s, shows Kronprinz Wilhelm as a leutnant in the regiment. Another photo shows his brother, next-in-line Prinz Eitel Friedrich. The balance of the book is filled with formal and informal views of the regiment’s soldiers. It is a very entertaining and informative visual history of a very elite regiment.

  • ALBUM BELONGING TO MANFRED VON RICHTHOFEN’S GREAT AUNT

    SKU: 15-32

    $1,595.00

    Clara von Richthofen was the paternal great-aunt of Rittmeister Manfred von Richthofen. She was the sister of Julius Georg Ludwig, the father of Albrecht von Richthofen, who was the father of Manfred and Lothar von Richthofen. Clara was born in 1829 and died in Berlin 1909. This album which was presented to her in 1845 by a favorite uncle (a von Berenhorst). There are numerous entries mostly from the 1840’s and 1850’s. There is at least one item as late as the 1870’s. She married Guido von Busse in 1850, and although they were married for 38 years, she had no children; which is why this album would have passed down into the Red Baron’s family. This very high quality album, in which Clara made entries for many years, is the journal and art album of a young Prussian noblewoman starting at the age of sixteen. On the opposite page from the dedication by her Uncle is her autograph, “Clara von Richthofen.” As the album develops we see the art and writings of a romantic young woman. There are lithographs (colored and black and white) of places that she visited and people that she admired. Many of these images have captions which due to their age are somewhat faded. There are several poems sprinkled through the album. As you go through the album there are also several examples of pressed flowers and leaves which are surprisingly nice for being one hundred and fifty years old. There are also at least two concert programs from concerts which she attended in the 1850’s and 1870’s. There are also several original sketches done by Clara and while I am far from an art expert, she seemed quite talented to me. Many of these sketches are in pencil but there is one that she sketched and then colored. Speaking of colored sketches there that she did of an “Uncle Richthofen” that is quite spirited and the old gentleman has a very prominent nose. The album has fifty-seven pages of information in it and it is an excellent study of a young Prussian noblewoman of the mid 19th Century. Overall it is in surprisingly good condition.

  • ALBUMS – PHOTOGRAPHS – POSTCARDS

    SKU: 40-350

    $10.00

    I found these albums years ago on a buying trip to Germany. They are modern-day productions, but very similar in style to albums used during the Imperial German Period. I only have a few of them left. I wanted to share them with you as they are wonderful for housing postcards and/or photographs. The albums measure 6 1/2″ x 8 1/4,” and are gray-green with a textured finish. Yes, in some ways they are reminiscent of feldgrau. Each boasts twelve double-sided pages. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to house your postcards and photos, these certainly fit the bill. SPECIAL OFFER: if you buy more than $200.00 of combined postcards and/or photographs, we will throw one of these in for free. This is in addition to receiving the other discounts we are offering for larger orders. Just let us know that you want one!

  • ALBUMS – PHOTOGRAPHS/POSTCARDS

    SKU: 12-687

    $10.00

    These are NOT period albums. They are albums that I found in Germany several years ago that measure 8″ x 6 ½.” Each has a pebbled feldgrau surface, with a string tie that holds the album pages together. Each album has a total of TEN blank pages. They are very similar to what was used one-hundred-years ago. They can make a fine way in which to display your postcards or photographs. We have several of them and can offer a discount on the purchase of multiple albums.
