This is a consignment item. It is a photo album for a Generalmajor who served in Constantinople as the German Mission’s Chief of Staff. Werner von Lenthe (1863-1942) was a career military officer. He entered the army in 1884 and served as a leutnant in Oldenburg Dragoner-Regiment Nr 19. He continued on to serve in Husaren-Regiment Nr 7 as an oberleutnant from 1892 until 1901. During this time, he also served as an adjutant in Kavallerie-Brigade Nr 20 and at the X. Armeekorps, when he was promoted to Rittmeister. As a Rittmeister, he was transferred to Mecklenburg-Schwerin Dragoner-Regiment Nr 18. He also served at the War Ministry as a major from 1905 into 1909, then went to Mecklenburg-Schwerin Dragoner-Regiment Nr 17. He then served in Küraßier-Regiment Nr 3, where he was promoted to command the regiment.
Upon his promotion to oberst, he returned to the War Ministry. With the outbreak of the war, he commanded the 10. Landwehr-Brigade, where he remained until transferring to his final wartime post in Turkey in the winter of 1916-1917. He was promoted to Generalmajor in January 1917, holding that post and position until the war’s end. He completed his military career with postwar fighting in Russia, where Germany sent officers as advisors.
The photo album is brown in color and measures 10″ x 8 ½” x 1 ½.” Approximately ninety-five photos measuring approximately 8 cm x 5.5 cm are included. They show the Bosporus with warships, fortifications, and daily Turkish life. Also included are five original postcards on postcard stock that show von Lenthe and other cavalry officers from the period. They show a variety of cavalry officers in their respective uniforms. They are autographed. Research that describes the action in each photo appears on a separate page.
Speaking of research, it includes an incredible work up about von Lenthe’s career and copies of the German research material. The new owner will have an excellent idea of what he has purchased and can follow closely the action depicted therein. Finally, a large photograph (NOT period original) is included. It is printed on high-quality paper measuring 8 ½” x 11,” and shows von Lenthe in a generalmajor’s uniform. He wears the 1914 Iron Cross on his left breast, with an extensive ribbon bar above it. It is simply first-rate. $650.00 Special Close-Out Pricing!!
