I have been looking for years for one of these books and finally got it..... I have them from the 1940s (super hard to find also) and other years but this one always got away.. It is a large format book printed in the early 1900s..
Brakes down all trademarks by type, etc.... There are a few in private collections and Museum reference collections...

The 1st one I have seen is from 1684 . As there is only one original it was reprinted by the Solingen Trade-school in 1934...I have 3 of them but one of the books is a very limited presentation copy to a teacher in vellum (animal skin) with original slip case..

I have seen just a few of DAMAST library of books. It is with out a doubt the best collection of reference books in the US.

Thank you for the compliment..
I remember at the SOS you saw one of my 1943 books Like the one listed above with Trademarks for Steel and Iron for Germany and Austria..plus other goodies I had there grin That was a great show... The fact is at the MAX and the SOS shows I always spend way!!! too much money on goodies..Always great things hiding around...
P.S. The 1941 version of this is the one more commonly seen (never) and used in references... While these books are rare and were all accounted for (they were issued) numbered.. The 1943 version is almost unheard of.
