Re: Die Aquarienpflanzen in Wort und Bild

Well, I don't speak German, but I do interlibrary loan for the library here, and
have access to several large bibliographic databases.

You're right in that it's a 2 volume looseleaf set.  The first was published in
1951-1952 and has 16 parts to it, totaling 340 pages.  

Part 2 was published in 1958, but I don't have any information on how many parts
or pages are in that volume.  

There's about a dozen libraries around the US that own these, so it's entirely
possible that you might be able to get your local library to borrow a copy for
you if you can't find a copy to purchase.  If you want the full bibliographic
record I can send it to you off-line.  

Three cheers for interlibrary loan!

Any German-speakers out there who might have a spare second to help me
figure out the story behind this *book*?

*Die Aquarienpflanzen in Wort und Bild* is/(was?) apparently edited by
Albert wendt, and published by Alfred Kernen Verlag.  What I have is a
series of loose-leaf  *books*, if you will; that are each (#'s 1-20)
collected in a series of light green paper folders approximately 6"wide by 7
inches high.  Each folio (they are not bound) contains about 20 to 25 pages,
two hole punched on the left margin as if they were intended to go in a
binder of some sort.  The last two sets say *Bearbeitet von Christel
Kasselmann*  on the covers.  And these are the only two that have color
photos.  The First couple of sets appear to be releatively old, but I can't
be certain, because there are no publishing dates on any of it.  C

Can anyone illuminate me??
