Up for auction is 2 used German volumes either they are encyclopedias or they are a 2 volume dictionary. Sorry we do not understand the German language but will try to do our best. The oldest is dated 1888 with very nice illustrations such as maps, machines engines, statues, flags, birds, insects,etc. The other volume is dated 1890 and has maps, people of the world, plants, ships, etc. There are smaller illustrations through-out both books. They have some in color and a few that fold out. Both books are in bad condition on the outside with part of the leather spines missing, edge and corner wear, missing pieces all over. They are black cloth with black leather corners and half the spine on the 1890 volume, the 1888 volume has a part of the leather spine inside the front cover. There is also gold designs and lettering on what is left of the spines. Both have the previous owners name on the inside front covers. They are in fair to good condition on the inside. There is yellowing of the pages. They both measure about 6 1/2' across and 9 3/4' tall. Please feel free to ask any questions and we will try to answer the best we can, Thankyou.
