The wording of the cover refers exclusively to 'bretter' - meaning planks or boards, but I believe the term, appended to Dame(Draughts)/Schach(Chess) can refer more generically to'games'.

This catalogue/extract/price list is entirely in German (as opposed to my seemingly later version which is in English/Spanish and was no doubt for export purposes).  The German should be relatively 'understandable' however (other than nuances) to those, like me, with 'Schoolboy German'!

Chess-related extracts from my later catalogue are shown in my main Uhlig album. 

The cover is of a much paler grey-green that the bright green of my later catalogue. As the colour is consistent throughout and especially on internal/external pages, it does not seem to be due to fading.

These appear to be the same as in the later catalogue - other than the 'currency' being shown in term 7 here as "Mark 20", as opposed of "RM20" in the later version, RM - ℛℳ - referring to Reichsmark as later adopted by Germany for a period (1924 - 1948) after which the Deutsche Mark was used (in West Germany - the Ostmark or 'Mark der DDR' was used in Eastern Germany).

For some reason, the frontispiece and its obverse, this page, are the only pages that are perforated for easy removal - the perforation holes can just be seen at the left in the next image.

These appear to be exactly the same (allowing for translation!) and with the same pagination as in the later catalogue.

Draughts boards with 'Mill (and Puff) [other games] and Draughtsmen'

The drawing is identical to the later catalogue as is the reference numbers/sizes etc other than layout.

 In subsequent images/comparisons, I will not bother to state the 'identical' aspects - only differences. So - assume the pages ae the same unless stated differently.
