Gesellschaft für deutsche Erziehungs- und Schulgeschichte Berlin (Berlin, Germany)

20140422_115608

The Gesellschaft für deutsche Erziehungs- und Schulgeschichte (society for german history of education and schools) was founded in 1890 and lasted until 1938. The society worked quite effective, as there are a number of publications connected to their name, even a long running scientific journal (Mitteilungen der Gesellschaft für deutsche Erziehungs- und Schulgeschichte). In this journal, the society published their annual reports, including its budget. In this budget an office and a library for this office are mentioned all the time. The stamp below seems to be used in this office library. (The stamp above is the stamp of the predecessor of the library for the resarch on the history of education in Berlin.)

The stamp, unfortunaly fragmented, presents the name of the society. Two things are worth mentioning. The double frame with the small and the thick border, and the usage of four different fonts, which – although all of them are with serif – give the stamp a restless appearence.

Gymnasium Zeitz (Zeitz, Germany)

This stamp is coming from the gymnasium Zeitz, a city in Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. As there are more than one  gymnasium in this town today, we are not able to say, to which one it  actually belonged. Still, the stamp must have been printed on the journal in the 19th century, as the "Zeitschrift für mathematischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Unterricht" (Journal for mathematical and natural sciencentific education) started in 1870 and the current example is the eleventh year.

This stamp (on the left-hand side) is from the Gymnasium Zeitz, a city in Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. As there are more than one gymnasium in this town today, we are not able to say to which one it actually belonged, if any. Still, the stamp must have been printed on the journal in the 19th century, as the “Zeitschrift für mathematischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Unterricht” (Journal for mathematical and natural sciencentific education) started in 1870 and the current example is the eleventh year (1881). Furthermore, the handwritten text below the stamp is in Sütterlin, the historical form of German handwriting, which is not taught anymore in our days.

The original stamp with its rectangle form and the double lined border is more elaborated than other simple lined stamps. The mention "ungültig" across the first stamp indicates that the stamp of Zeitz is not in effect anymore. It can be assumed that the journal was removed from the collection. However, there is no mention of elimination.

However, there is no mention of its elimination, but only the mention of invalidness.

Dublette der Stiftsbibliothek St. Gallen (St. Gallen, Switzerland)

This stamp attracted our attention because of its text, which indicates that the book has been eliminated from the collection of one of the most well-known and most precios Abbey Libraries, namely this of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

This stamp attracted our attention because of its text, which indicates that the book has been eliminated as duplicate from the collection of one of the most well-known and most precious Abbey Libraries, namely this of St. Gallen in Switzerland. It is now situated in the library on research of the history of education in Berlin.

Rarely, an additional stamp is produced only for duplicates.

Rarely, an additional stamp is produced only for duplicates. Generally there are solely stamps which indicate that an oeuvre is completely eliminated from a collection. It can be assumed that the current book was part of an exchange of duplicates.

Carl Zeiss Jena (Jena, Germany)

This book has apparently been part of one of the institutional libraries of the Carl Zeiss company. The Carl Zeiss incorporation is one of the most well-known and still succesful German manufacturer in the field of optics, industrial measurements and medical devices. The creation of the company library in Jena dates from 1905, when the physician Ernst Abbe, a friend of Carl Zeiss, offered his private scientific collection to the Carl Zeiss Company. Today, the library is part of an University of Applied Sciences.

Interestingly, the stamp has a complete different, more sophisticated, form than those known from other libraries (i. ex. round or oval) and is not printed on the title page, but on the inside of the cover.

The stamp has the form of the old company logo and is not printed on the cover page, but on the inside of the cover page. This logo is as well part of the Carl Zeiss Football Club in Jena.

Deutsches Schulmuseum Berlin (Berlin, Germany)

Already mentioned in the post of the 15.6.2014 about the Deutsche Lehrerbücherei (german teacher library), the Deutsches Schulmuseum (german school museum) is the first name used on the foundation of what today is called the Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung (library for research on education history). The Museums' collection mainly contained lendable education material for teachers. The word museum is therefore used in a different context than we use it in our time, that is to say more close to what we would name today as a library.

Already mentioned in the post on June 15, 2014, about the Deutsche Lehrerbücherei (german teacher library), the Deutsches Schulmuseum (german school museum) is the foundation name, applied in 1876, of what today is called the Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung (library for the research on the history of education). The Museums’ collection mainly contained lendable education material for teachers. The word “museum” is therefore used in a different context than we use it in our time, that is to say more close to what we would call a library.

The pattern of the stamp has been reused when the Deutsches Schulmuseum changed its name into Deutsche Lehrer-Bücherei in 1908. Furthermore, there is the rectangle stamp with space for the numerus currens.

A closer look at the stamp shows the stamp’s antique pattern, which later has been reused when the Deutsches Schulmuseum changed its name into Deutsche Lehrer-Bücherei in 1908. The rectangle stamp with the numerus currens on the right is a witness of this later period.

Deutsche Lehrerbücherei (Berlin, Germany)

The Deutsche Lehrer-Bücherei (german teachers library) is the predecessor of the Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung (library for the research on the history of education) in Berlin. Established in 1876 as Deutsches Schulmuseum (german museum on schools), renamed as teachers library in 1908, renamed again as Pädagogisches Zentrum (peadogic centre) in 1945, and turned into the institution it is now in 1992, the old teachers library did two things. It was an institution for the vacotional training of teachers and a centre for research on schools and pedagogy.

It was an institution for the vocational training of teachers and a centre for research on schools and pedagogy. [The stamp above was used by the Cassianeum Donauwörth (Bavaria), a catholic secondary school in the mainland of german catholism, which is only fitting, as the journal is the "catholic journal on teaching and education".]

The old stamp, used here, combines an oval form, used in quite a lot of libraries at the time, with a more rustical pattern, citing "classical antique" forms.

During its existence as teachers library, the institution used different stamps. Seen here, on the cover of a journal on teaching materials, are two different stamps. The one above resembles the one before, but the pattern used around the oval border is different.

The other stamp, used here on a journal for upper secondary school without latin, leaves place for the numerus currens used for shelving. (It still is used in the library today, although with a different system, counting the years in front of the actual number.)

As you can see by further inspection, the number itself is stamped also - it's a stamp in a stamp.

Bezirkslehrerbibliothek Landshut (Landshut, Germany)

This stamp is coming from a district library for teachers, which has been created in the beginning of the 19th century. The mention in the middle of the stamp indicates that the book has been eliminated from the collection.

This stamp is coming from the Landshut’s (Bavaria) district library for teachers, which has been created probably around the beginning of the 19th century. The mention in the middle of the stamp indicates that the book has been eliminated from this collection and is now integrated in the library for research on history of education in Berlin.

Comparing to stamps of today, this one, with its oval form, is quite modern and could still be used today.

Pay attention to the hand-writing by an unknown librarian.

Bibliothek des Grossherzöglichen Realgymnasiums Apolda (Apolda, Germany)

These two stamps show the transition from the Saxonian Grand Ducal Willhelm and Luise Zimmermann "Realschule" to the Library of the Grand Ducal "Realgymnasium". This change took place in 1911. A Realschule wanted to prepare their students to higher positions in normal workforce. The Realgymnasium, on the other hand, offers their students the education to magistrate positions.

Interestingly, the older stamp is more classic with its round form and the second one seems boring, but contains a pre-selected place for the signature, which can be added by hand.

Bibliothek der Gewerkschaft Bildung und Erziehung, Hamburg (Hamburg, Germany)

This stamp belongs to the library of the teachers union in Germany, which exists up until today. (With the interruption of the Nazi era.) This stamp is on a journal on youth education from 1911.

The stamp reflects the modern style of layout of the time, as the union itself is still know to be one of the more progressive unions. This holds also true to the 1910s and 1920s.

Interestingly the modern style of layout is not reduced to the library stamps, but also used at the layout of the journal itself.
