PAMPHLET, 8 3/4 X 4 inches, unfolding to sheet 17 1/2 x 24 inches, color and green and white illustrations, map. Light scattered foxing, very good condition. One side of the unfolded brochure (text in English) provides a map of Germany with locations of universities, technical colleges, etc. The map is bordered by green and white photo illustrations and includes a small inset map of "Germany's Geographical Position in Europe." The first panel of the folded brochure is headlined "American Students and Germany," and informs the reader that "in the last few years the number of American students has been constantly growing, so that it seems necessary to give prospective students a concise description of German universities." Further along in the brochure a tantalizing prospect for the American scholar is advanced: "Attendance at the Universities and Colleges of Germany is radically different from that in the U.S.A. in so far as there are no prescribed or fixed yearly courses with final examinations and promotions to higher courses.... Complete liberty prevails." Overall, a fascinating brochure which seeks to supplement enrollments across Germany with self-funded Americans. The handsome map is of particular interest. Item #33813
