A complete run of the tenth edition through "Abschnitt 402" of this important bibliography issued in parts. (Sheehy, 1986, 1047). A multi-volume, extensive compilation of primary and secondary sources of works on German history. This work is the standard bibliography of all of German history from the Middle Ages to the end of World War II, and includes references up until 1960. The tenth edition makes significant efforts to include references to works not written in Germany. With the two volume index (1985) to volumes 1-4 bound in stiff paper wrappers that provides authors and subjects. Also with the complete three volume index and volume 12 (1997-1999), which is a guide to use. Loosely inserted is a typed letter from H.P. Kraus Rare Books to Anton Hiersemann Verlag, Stuttgart inquiring about "Abschnitte 393-402," a letter of reply from Hiersemann, photocopies of the first and last page of "Abschnitte 393-402," and a four page pamphlet (published by Anton Hiersemann, Stuttgart, c.1970) detailing the state of the publication. Small chip at head of spine on volume 2. Loosely inserted is a commemorative booklabel which indicates that this set came from the reference library of H.P. Kraus purchased by Oak Knoll Books at the auction sale. We are including with this set two volumes bound in red cloth which contain sections 393-402. They have markings from formerly being part of a public library collection, and the exteriors show minor wear and soiling. In these two volumes the original, printed stiff paper wrappers have been bound in.
