Good two-volume set of Third Reich cigarette albums, "Zeppelin-Weltfahrten" (Dresden: Greiling Zigarettenfabrik), 1932 & 1933, each approx. 60pp. oblong folio. The first volume is completely filled with 265 b/w cigarette cards, depicting Zeppelin voyages and uses in war from 1899 to 1932, while the second volume, containing 155 cards, primarily depicts such travels from 1933 on. Topics depicted include the bombings of Entente cities by Zeppelins during World War I, transatlantic voyages, and appearances at NSDAP rallies in Nuremberg, with many of these presented through aerial photos taken from the airships themselves. The volumes also include schematics of various Zeppelin types, biographies of important personages involved with their development, and maps of their various flights. Volume II is housed in its original brown paper slipcase. Both shows slight bumping at the corners and slight edge wear, else very good.
