A tiny hole just in from the right edge (perhaps a printing flaw?) A rare piece of ephemera, we can find no other copies for sale. Hitler spoke before 30,000 people on this, his only visit to Worms. The football stadium was originaly called the "Wormatia Stadium" but was henceforth (after 1933) proudly called the "Adolf Hitler Stadium" (or later the "Kampfbahn").

    . Première édition. Petit billet publicitaire / flyer pour un discours d'Adolf Hitler tenu dans le stade de football de Worms le samedi 12 juin 1932. Ce petit billet est basé sur une affiche plus grande de R. Sch, imprimée par gebruder Hoffman de Worms. Il est imprimé sur du papier recyclé épais. Il est clairement imprimé et coupé avec un bord dentelé (ou peut-être déchiré d'une feuille perforée plus grande ?). 70 x 100 mm. Très bon état, propre et sans marques significatives. Il s'agit d'un document éphémère rare, dont nous n'avons pas trouvé d'autres exemplaires à vendre. Hitler s'est exprimé devant 30 000 personnes lors de sa seule visite à Worms. Le stade de football s'appelait à l'origine le "Wormatia Stadium" mais fut désormais (après 1933) fièrement appelé le "Adolf Hitler Stadium" (ou plus tard le "Kampfbahn").

She was prosecuted for libel several times and in 1781 sentenced to six months in prison for libelling the Russian ambassador.

  • The Advantages of Saccharin in the Manufacture of Aerated Waters, Cordials, &c by [ANON]
    [ANON]
    The Advantages of Saccharin in the Manufacture of Aerated Waters, Cordials, &c

    London: Wilson, Salamon, & Co., Ltd, 1894. Scarce reprint (improved and revised 10th edition) of the original business pamphlet had become necessary as, within three years of the original, the contents were viewed more as a practical text book than a promotional item. At the time, saccharin was considered be a good inclusion, as - to quote this booklet - it never creates acidity or heartburn, and is, in these respects, far healthier than sugar! Blue soft covers are a little creased at edges, and inside the staples holding the booklet together are somewhat rusted. Overall good. 48 pages. 210 x 135 mm (8¼ x 5¼ inches).
