Rainer E. Lotz mit Michael Gunrem und Stephan Puille: Das Bilderlexikon der deutschen Schellack-Schallplatten (5 Bände) - The German Record Label Book

History of historical sound recordings in Germany by Rainer E. Lotz with Michael Gunrem and Stephan Puille. 

Germany was the cradle of the international sound recording industry. After initial experiments with speaking dolls in the Thuringian town of Waltershausen in the 1890s, Hanover, Berlin and Leipzig quickly developed into centres of speaking machines and record production. From there, recording expeditions and field trips all over the world were conducted. The two world wars and inflation interrupted world market leadership, but Germany nevertheless remained an important producer and exporter until the end of the shellac era around 1959 - and, adding modern speaking dolls, until the 1980s.

It is therefore all the more astonishing that German record brands and their labels have not yet been comprehensively presented. This gap is now to be closed: by an opulent work in 5 volumes with over 13,000 colour illustrations on a total of 2,288 pages! Comments and notes in German language.

In addition to the regular commercial shellac records in the narrower sense - with the exception of phonograph cylinders - also all other record carriers are catalogued: in particular sound postcards, picture records, speech doll records, advertising records, contract pressing, self-recording records, anonymous records without company names, flexible records, and much more.

Customer evaluation for "Das Bilderlexikon der deutschen Schellack-Schallplatten (5 Bände) - The German Record Label Book"
9 May 2020

This massive picture book of German shellac records is hardly susceptible to a conventional review.

They are to be found under Anonym-[Grammophon] (Deutschlandsender), along with other issues with different logos. 'Lyra' also has no cross-reference. This is both a book to dip into and delight in, and a very significant work of reference which will answer most questions about the German recording indus-try and its products. Howard Rye

This work is amazing!

This work is amazing! We are already using it for nearly every single question we face related to our historical discography. It is so clearly presented (even if written in German, which only eriches us culturaly a bit more), so nice to take it and find out chronologies, schemes, excellent pictures...

It is also a primary tool to document information other than the audio content (sleeves, stamps, labels, pressings...), which is a matter of great interest for both our users and ourselves.

Press and Reviews
Press Review - Das Bilderlexikon der deutschen Schellack-Schallplatten - CLPGS
Press Review - Das Bilderlexikon der deutschen Schellack-Schallplatten - CLPGS BOOK REVIEWS DAS BILDERLEXIKON DER DEUTSCHEN SCHELLACK-SCHALLPLATTEN Dr. Rainer Lotz first published his seminal work Grammophon-platten au der Ragtime Ara in 1979, since when he has produced a large body of work culminating in the magisterial, 44 CD, 2 volume Black Europe in 2013. It seemed impossible for him to produce anything that was even more impressive — but he has. This stupendous work is in 5 volumes with over 2200 pages, more than 10,000 colour pictures of record labels and countless black & white repro-ductions of trade-mark regis-trations and more. This book is not a discography; it has no catalogue reconstructions but it is, as described in the title, a picture encyclopaedia of German record labels. This does not mean that it con-tains information about record labels only sold in Germany; it embraces all records pressed in Germany ir-respective of the country of origin of the master.

Press Review - Das Bilderlexikon der deutschen Schellack-Schallplatten - names & numbers This massive picture book of German shel-lac records is hardly susceptible to a conven-tional review. Quite apart from the impossibil-ity of reading every page on a reasonable time scale, who other than the authors themselves is qualified to judge the contents? Band 1 starts with a brief history of the German record in-dustry up to the mid-fifties, followed by a tech-nical section defining terms and including an il-lustrated section on `Lisenzmarken' (copyright stamps). This section also includes some pic-tures of `Sprechpuppe' (talking dolls). The text proper begins on page 31 with 59 pages de-voted to anonymous discs, fifteen of which are indeed devoted to discs for Sprechpuppen. The format of the main text is label photo-graphs accompanied by a tabulation of Series-Owner-Manufacturer-Distribution-Repertoire-Dates of Issue, and a description of the label. Longer notes are also provided for many labels to elucidate histories too complicated for tab-ulation. Coverage extends to phantom labels (advertised or trade-marks registered but no issues made; there are a lot of the latter) and I have noted a few labels known only from liter-ature and therefore not illustrated.
