Thanks for all your answers Niklas,
a nice item to have... I would guess from my own experience with many bound Nazi publications that this one was bound after 1945 and the booklets/heften themselves may come from where you suspect-or not(especially if the publication dates on any are after the soldier's time at Bad Tolz). Still such publications would of course be made available as soon as published ,one way or another to such SS men.
Of course, I could be wrong, but the condition of the hard cover binding coupled with the look of the printed title on the spine leads me to surmise it was re-bound after '45.
That in itself is not really any problem for us SS collectors(but the strictly book collecting world would be less forgiving-if you care)...many such after 1945 bindings have been seen over the years by me and I am sure others.
To me it is nice to see someone cared enough to re-bind them for their protection(and regular people dont always care what the world of book collecting uses as criteria for value/ original condition)
thanks again for sharing,
