WWI MACEDONIA German Bulgaria WAR PHOTO BOOK
* click on image for fullsize view
Item description: * DON’T MISS TO SEE ALL LINKED SCANS – REMARKABLE! Presented is an extreme Bibliography rarity and a true militaria and military history gem. This UNIQUE book, or to be precise - a specially designed photo album of Macedonia and the Macedonian front during WWI was made for the German and Bulgarian Army and personally designed by Hannes M. Avenarius. The book has 13 fully engraved pages with superb graphical work of Avenarius and all pages have hand painted parts in full color and gold. All those truly remarkable engravings of Avenarius make the book a fine work of art. Each book that was printed has been personally signed by M. Avenarius and dated.
The book is about the size of an A4 format, 60 or more mm thick and consists of about 100 pages of engravings and art photo reproductions from the Macedonian front, the life of the German and Bulgarian Army, the life of the Macedonian people and other town views. Also there is a number of specially selected photos of the German aviation units as well as of the German Imperial 34th Balloon unit near Skopie.
The title and inside covers of the album are Avenarius engravings printed in red, black and gold and are titled “MACEDONIA”:

The 3rd inside cover page is also an Avenarius engraving with special text in Gothic German that it was made on behalf of the German Imperial 34th Balloon unit and there is also a text in Bulgarian on top saying “PICTURES FROM MACEDONIA AND MORAVIA”:

WWI Macedonia War Photo Album – 34th Balloon German Unit - Image 3

The 4th inside cover page is again an Avenarius engraving with text both in German and Bulgarian saying “IN MEMORY OF THE UNITED COMBAT ACTIVITIES OF THE GERMAN – BULGARIAN ARMY. ISSUED BY THE 34TH BALLOON UNIT IN COORDINATION WITH THE CARTOGRAPHIC UNIT TO THE GENERAL STAFF OF THE ARMY. THE IMAGES OF THE 34TH BALLOON UNIT WERE PRINTED IN THE PRESENT COLLECTION AT THE HELIOGRAPHIC PRINTING HOUSE TO THE CARTOGRAPHIC UNIT FROM THE STAFF OF 3RD ARMY. ALL THE ARTWORK AND DESIGN OF THE BOOK WAS DONE BY HANNES M. AVENARIUS DURING THE SPRING.” The page is dated underneath in gold – 1917:

Following are 4 fully Avenarius engraved and different in design pages including the Table of Contents both in German and Bulgarian languages. The table of contents includes a text for each photo reproduction printed in the inside. Some of the titles include “THE PASSING OF DANUBE, DANUBE BALLOON, CHURCH IN SMEDEROVO, VILLAGE HOUSES, WEDDING, LOVCHAN MOUNTAIN FROM AIRPLANE, GENERAL VON BELOW, THE OPENING OF THE GERMAN BULGARIAN CASINO BY GENERAL NEREZOV, GERMAN AIRPLANE OVER VARDAR, CAPTAIN VON BEULKE AT THE MACEDINIAN FRONT, SHOT DOWN ENEMY PLANE, VELESSE, VIEWS FROM SKOPIE, THE GREEK BORDER.

Finally, the back hardcover cover is again Avenarius engraving:

The book is very heavy and in between every page there is a special thin and semi transparent “rice” paper. All pages are numbered in gold and all sides of the book are finished in gold leaf.
In my opinion there are no more than 10 such books made probably one for each General Commander of Staff, Ministers of War and some other extremely high ranking persons. However and so far this is the only example known to exist. There are absolutely no missing pages and book is in perfect condition. Comes from an old collection. TRULY SCARCE COLLECTOR PIECE.
