Very nice - and rarely encountered! - small-sized WH instruction-booklet entitled: 'Das Gewehr 98 und seine Handhabung' (= instruction-/training manual for the K98 rifle) - very nice and only moderately used ie. issued condition!
This is a nice example of the scarcely encountered WH instruction-booklet, entitled: 'Das Gewehr 98 und seine Handhabung' (or instruction-/training manual for the standard-type K98 rifle), in overall nice and only minimal used ie. read condition. The small-sized booklet only sized: 15 x 10,5 cms. - is fully complete and retains all its 46 pages - containing various (ie. 33) illustrations and glued-in to be folded out leaflet (!) - and is just somewhat yellowed caused by normal age ie. storage. As possibly known has this booklet been also reproduced: this is naturally a fine original and period example! The booklet provides the reader with text and illustrations with a complete insight on properly using the standard WH rifle (or K98) and all its accesoiries (including the various types of ammunition, cleaning-kit and/or bayonet, something that was of course deemed needed in the German army!). These sought-after publications - by the 'Heinz Denckler Verlag' in Berlin - were not 'standard issue' but had to be privately acquired by the soldiers ie. NCO's and officers. Simply a nice and scarce publication: it is just the fourth such rare piece I have ever encountered. A great addition to a field-gear/mannequin set-up!
