    Kenworth: It is a legal gazette that was published from 1871 to 1945 that detailed the newly issued laws, legal opinions, and and applications of extant German law. Yours is for the second half of 1938. Dwight

    It's a Law Book from 1938 listing the Legal Statutes ...The majority of listed topics concern legal changes for Austrians after the Anschluss...Quite decorative and good quality, it would be great if you had the full set of course, lol...
    cheers, Glenn

    Glenn has already explained about the nature of the book; just allow me to elaborate a little:

    The Reichsgesetzblatt [National Law Gazette] (for short RGBl.) came in two parts: Teil 2 [section 2] contained those national laws, statutes etc. concerning international treaties, national finances, national railways, shipping, the national bank and internal matters of the national parliamant. All other national laws, statutes etc. were published in Teil 1 (section 1).

    Teil 1 and Teil 2 were published as a series of individual publications over the course of the year. Within one year, the publications were numbered sequentially and the pages consecutively across all these publications. (For example, 1933 had a total of 149 numbers of the Reichsgesetzblatt Teil I with pages numbered 1 to 1138.) The same principle applies to the present-day equivalent, the Bundesgesetzblatt [Federal Law Gazette] (BGBl.), by the way.

    At the end of the year, complete tables of contents for the whole year were published and it was common practice to have bookbinding firms bind the individual numbers into massive, hardbound volumes, for which these rather nice and impressive gold-embossed covers and spines were commercially available.

    These are historically signifcant documents and also very useful reference material for historians and, to a certain degree, even for collectors looking for background documentation (as the institution of natural awards and decorations was also published in the RGBl., Teil I).

    For the benefit of German-speaking members, digitized versions of the RGBl. from 1919 through 1945 may be found here:

    I own the volumes for 1933 to 1943 myself. Best of all, I got them for free a decade ago: When my employer moved to a new facility back in 2003, a lot of old documents of all kinds were destroyed or simply dumped to reduce moving costs and save on archive space. This fate would have befallen those old law texts as well, so I asked whether I could have them, which was granted. Too bad the volumes for 1944 and 1945 were missing:
