Münchener Kalender / 1916.

Munich, Germany: Georg Joseph Manz, 1916. Hupp, Otto. First Edition. Wraps. This is a series of large (16x31 cm) paper book calendars printed by G.J. Manz, München, Germany. These calendars were designed by the famous German artist Otto Hupp and were issued by the Zentralverein für Kirchenbau, who decided in 1884 to issue an artcalendar. The first calendars show, besides the different months and some general information on the year the arms of the zodiac signs, as well as the arms of München on the front page. In 1895 Hupp finally got permission to add in each calendar 12 arms of German States and important noble families. At the end of the calendar genealogical data on the different families were added, written by Gustav A. Seyler and from 1922 onwards by Dr. von Klocke. Dates of issue: 1885-1936. This series brought heraldry to more renown and understanding in the general public. Very Good. Chipping, wear to all extremities and extensive toning, scattered foxing, else clean and bright internally. Crack to upper wrappers. Oblong, 16x31 cm, 34 pp + color illus. Item #10913
