Section of Four (4) 8.5' x 11' handcolored plates in Gouache. These are original uncolored Scholtz plates from the colored by Riehn.
Riehn mentioned that he used the three volume work of Pietch, Knotel & Colas to 'tidy up' the one or two printing errors he found in the Scholtz work.
These plates are unique. Some of the plates have corrections which are evident but not obnoxious. Most, but not all, the plates have descriptions (either on the rear on a post-it note or have preprinted notations on the bottom of the plate). Riehn also wrote a short introduction to the Imperial German Army of the period which is included. It looks as though Dick Riehn was planning some sort of plate series that never happened, but that is only sujecture on my part.
I am always happy to combine wins to save on shipping.
