    I'm NOT promoting the content , just another interesting find.

    Background: There are a number of illustrated books published during the Nazi era. They were large books in which one pasted photographs received as premiums*. This one, published in 1936, was devoted to the deification of Adolf Hitler.

    *from a cigarette company.

    Hey buddy. Don't worry. I didn't imply you were promoting anything. ;-) It is indeed an interesting find with historical value. And in 1935-36 who knew what was coming?

    Besides that the Nazis during that time tried every way to support their ideologie it seems to have been more common to publish textbooks which were intended to be added wth pictures (not necessarily photographes).

    I own a book "Deutsche Märchen" with tipped in printed pictures, which I have got from my mother. The book was promoted by a cigarrette factory and is absolutely free of propaganda.
    In my youth there was another book about German history which was free of propaganda as well.

    Cigarette pictures were first introduced in the USA by James Buchanan Duke, founder of American Tobacco (End of nineteenth century)

    I liked these books because of their printed coloured pictures.

    a powerful German sewing machine is a fair substitute

    it runs like ..well , a well engineered German machine

    the quilters like this model as It'll go thru so many thicknesses.

    strong & quiet

    (and heavy ...31 pounds)

    Oh yeah, quite an interesting (& rare) first edition book too.
