Filmed from Rudolf Mosse_s personal book collection at the Leo Baeck Institute in New York City, this collection contains 94 business histories and biographies from Mosse_s era and earlier. Included are in-depth portraits of the Frankfurter Zeitung for 1856_1906 and seven other newspapers, some going back to the 18th century. The two major German steamship lines are represented, with early histories of the Siemens, Krupp, and Zeiss dynasties among others, including the Fuggers of the Renaissance. Included are a richly illustrated review of the Meissen porcelain industry and a history of early pencil manufacture by the Faber company, as well as representative banks, printers and publishers, and chemical and electric power companies. A few titles reflect Mosse_s cultural interests and pride in his Jewish heritage. All are in German. Virtually all titles cover the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but many trace their subjects_ histories back into the 18th century or earlier.
