Default Bismarck - Heldengedenktag Booklet for Families of the Fallen

Hello to all members,

About a year ago I acquired a letter with booklet. The letter was from a 'Kapitaen zur See und Chef des Stabes des 2. Admirals der Ostseestation' and addressed to a Herr Jakobsen. The letter tells Herr Jakobsen of the fate of his son, Maschinenmaat Albert Jakobsen who served aboard the Battleship Bismarck. Together with the latter came the booklet "Dem Gedaechtnis der Maenner des Schlachtschiffes "Bismarck" und des Flottenchefs Admiral Guenther Luetjens". This booklet being sent to the next of kin of all those who lost their lives aboard the Bismarck - note the enclosed card containing a personal message of condolence/remembrance from Grossadmiral Raeder.
My question to forum members - how rare are these booklets?
Cheers,
Thomas
