German Alphabet Book Primer by Rudolf Dietlein

Categories: Children
Written By: John

Des Kindes erstes Lesebuch Illustrierte Fibel mit farbigen Bildern (The Child’s Alphabet Book Primer Illustrated with Colored Pictures) was published in a number of editions in the late 19th century.  This is an earlier edition, I believe, possibly from the 1880’s, but I am not positive.  It lacks a colored cover, which some later editions had, but that is hardly conclusive.  No dates are found in the book itself.

I post it mainly for the numerous color and black & white illustrations, but I have added a folder of the entire book (unedited, raw scans in very high resolution) for anyone interested in the book as a whole.  It is written in, but then again it was a child’s school book.

I have not been able to edit and post the cleaned up pictures yet, but will get to it shortly.  In the meantime the full page scans (very large) are HERE.

Here is what the images currently look like.   They are very large, so there is plenty of room to play with if you want to download them and edit them yourself before I get around to it.

The book itself will be up for sale in my SHOP sometime soon.

    Hi, again. It’s been a while since we last talked. Hope business is good for you.

    I just tried twice to download some files from the cart and I get an error message when I try to open the zipped file. Could it be that it is not compatible with the newest version of Windows? (I can’t check with my son ’til tomorrow.) He set me up with his “Old” computer that has the new Windows as its operating system.

    Thanks for your input in advance.

    Hi, totally awesome website… I hope you are still doing this (no entries for a couple of months!) I just sent a donation which is hardly enough to cover the amount of time, work and care you have put into this!

    Thank you for all you’ve done….
