Sarkowski, Bibliogr. Inst. 29.2. - Coll. Seemann 432. - Complete series with all 3 supplement vols. - "After Hitler had seized power in 1933, the encyclopedia's 7th edition had become worthless over night, as it was not in line with the then dominant idelogy. This why the last supplement vol. was increased by the addition 'Die nationale Revolution' (The National Revolution, 1440 cols.) in 1933" (translation of quote from coll. Seemann). - Spine somewhat rubbed in places, else well-preserved.
