Title: Unsere Reichswehr. (Schellhass-Tabak).
Description: Tabakfabrik Schellhass Söhne (Schellhass-Tabak), 1932. Oblong crown quarto. Pp. 18. Complete with all first 50 colour plates as issued, neatly mounted. Cards 51-100 were not issued; some other pictures that were placed in the empty places instead have been removed by the previous owner. Original pictorial wrappers, front nicely illustrated after a watercolour, publisher's tobacco products illustrated on back. In a very good condition. ¶ ~ First edition. Extremely rare. Tabakfabrik Schellhass Söhne operated from 1773 till 1932. It is in the course of its last year of operation that also the publication of this collection stopped. While the album meant to include 100 cards, only 50 were produced and all are included here. This particular copy comes from the bequest of renowned uniform historian and researcher Dr. Pieter Roelse and a memorandum in his hand refers to this fact. It is loosely inserted.
