Excellent reference book on earlier Steiff products with classification guides, color photos, in German with English translation.
Both this book and the other Steiff Sortiment 1947-1999 are flexibly-lined, tight-back books, meaning the spine enables the pages to flatten
out enough to be stable when lying open on the table, which is a great asset given these books are thick. All in all, a great companion book for the Steiff collector.
I bought both and have no regrets.

This book is useless if you own an atypical, special edition Steiff whose tag and ear button have been removed, and wish to verify its make. If it's not in here, archivists will tell you it is not a Steiff.

What if particular teddies, (for example: the 1908 special edition for the British market, with the first glass eyes, and a very similar 1909 classic teddy) are not shown or mentioned in the Sortiment? How can you verify them? I asked a few archivists, for example, Rebekah Kaufman, and to begin with, she had never even heard of the 1908 British edition with the glass eyes. Like other archivist, she just wanted to see a photo. But if they have never heard of it, how can they identify it?

Ironically enough, Steiff makes several varieties of reproductions of both the British 1908 special edition, as well as the 1909 classic teddies, just run it in a search engine.I asked Ms. Kaufman why they are not in the Sortiment, but could not tell you what her reply is because I it makes no sense to me. She just wanted to see the teddy, whose tag and ear button had been removed by yours truly. She immediately said it was a Knickerbocker. NOT! In our experience, an alarmingly large number of Steiff "experts", here and abroad, know nothing about the 1908 or 1909 classic Steiff teddies, and this disappointment of a tome is no exception.

A must have for the Steiff collector. Should have bought it sooner. Descriptions in both German and English with excellent pictures.
