Propagandistic commemorative hardcover book, 56pp. 4to., celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Solingen firm of Carl Eickhorn, makers of swords and daggers for the German armed forces. The book, self-published in 1940 by Eickhorn and printed by Hermann Ullrich in Solingen, opens with a quote from Adolf Hitler: "It is wonderful to live in a time that gives your people great tasks." It further presents a history of the company, well illustrated with engravings and historical photographs demonstrating the firm's origins and products, including officer's swords and daggers of the Wehrmacht. The book closes with thirteen plates of photos depicting the current production methods and employees of the company. Bound in cream boards with an Eickhorn squirrel on the front cover, shows minor toning to the flyleaves, with some bumps and minor soiling to the covers, else very good.
