    DAP Pin and Book Burning

    Can't sell, on eBay, this "canceled" Dr. Seuss Book I got for $10:

    Can't sell it on Ebay.

    Got this pin for $1. This is not the photo of the one I have, mine is in perfect condition. What does DAP stand for? "National Socialistische D.A.P."

    Also can't sell it on Ebay.

    Says something about a society which burns (or cancels) books....

    It is strange, I can understand German when someone speaks it to me, but I can't speak it very well myself.

    I have an old Duden from 1942, I think I paid $24 for it about 35 years ago, in a Washington, DC bookstore. I wouldn't part with it for less than $1000 now.

    It is quite large, maybe 25 cm x 30 cm, and has about 3500 pages. About 8-10 cm thick. The format is an illustration, with the Deutsch, then 4 pages of translations - English, French, Spanish, and Italian - then the next illustration, etc. Very detailed illustrations.

    What I would like to do is copy it, and sell the copies, so I am wondering if it is protected by copyright. It was printed in Switzerland. There is a notice in the front that it is protected by some sort of war-powers copyright.

    If I make copies of it, I would have to run all the pages through a scanner, and in the process, destroy the book. A real shame. However it is probably the most concise snapshot and illustrated compendium of 20th century and prior, world science, customs and technology, ever compiled, and it would be a shame to not pass this on to posterity.

    I am wondering if Duden would come after me for copyright violation. What is Duden, anyway? They're not a private company, are they?

    Why is the book 'cancelled'?

    Because it asks if 'Iran'.............

    That one temporarily clogged up the interocitor filter system, I had to search engine that... now I got it.

    The nation of Iran lies between the ancient lands of Babylon to the west and the mountains of Afghanistan to the east...
    In other words, it’s between Iraq and a hard place.

    What would happen if Iran became communist?
    It would become Weran

    In Iran everyone is so very afraid of Spiders, but in
    Iraq no phobia...

    Before training its killer dolphins, Iran had to convert them to
    fishlam.

    Stop they just get worse

    dont think you will get that. another Duden dictionary,much earlier, but also quite different. but what they are charging for delivery is just crecy. they make the books cheap and load it later with the delivery charges. one way to make their money. DUDEN by the way are still around. they dont produce them as BOOKS. but the electronic way is still being published and much easier also to be kept up to date. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Duden-Ortho...wAAOSw3ppgS8kw

    you give the book to a PROFESSIONAL company- restorator. they will do the scanning without destroying the book. but it will cost. for copyright issues you might want to write to them..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblio...sches_Institut you know on the left side is a button to change to English...

    Thanks, Bennie, I will check it out.

    I still have my old Kinderduden, printed in the 1960's or 70's. While, on the weekend, the rest of the GI's at the base in Bitburg were getting sloushed with Jim Beam and Johnny Walker, and making Zechtours, I was in the library going over each page of the Kinderduden until I had every object memorized.

    Russia needs a book like that, the Kinderduden.

    Japan also has a similar book, like the Kinderduden, but it is not found in the US or other countries. I am convinced Germany and Japan led the world in technology becuase they start out their children with schoolroom educational books like the illustrated dudens...
