    This is a 1930's Publishing Brochure for Das Ehrenkleid des Soldaten by Martin Lezius, printed in Germany by Verlag Ullstein Berlin.  The book is a cultural history of military uniforms from their beginnings to present times (1936).  This 6 page booklet, measuring 11.125" high by 8.25" wide, contains 8 color illustrations (5 full page illustrations, a half page image on the front cover and two small drawings on the back cover), including Landsknecht (after a 16th century woodcut); Grenadier of the Battalion Grenadier Guard from Retzow (from a lithograph by Adolph v. Menzel); Officer of the French Gens d'armes de la Maison du Roi at the time of Ludwig XV (1766); Royal Saxon Ulan (1820); German Reichsheer Officer of the Flying Troupe in Parade Uniform and a General in a Small Suit (1936); and French and Italian Infantry Men.  All of the text is in German.  This 1930's Publishing Brochure for Das Ehrenkleid des Soldaten is in good condition, particularly given its age.  The bottom corner of the front cover has been taped inside and there is a small crease in the pages near the bottom left hand corner, which does not affect the illustrations.
