(missing an index?)


This collection of rare mimeographed typescripts was written between 1928 and 1938 and include hundreds of names with short biographies of famous people buried at the Munich cemeteries. The names mostly include scientists, artist, including lithographers, engravers and map makers, publishers, writers but also politicians. Among mostly men some females, especially writers, are listed. Listed are not only Germans, but also other people from central and eastern Europe. 

The author was a senior state inspector Clemens Bolz (1879 — 1955), who finished the pamphlets always on the All Saints’ Day. A small lane close to the South Cemetery in Munich is today named after him. 

These copies were annotated contemporary and the last note was added in 1940. It is possible some annotations were made after the war to mark the gravestones, damaged in the bombings.  

The set of pamphlets was made for the official use only and is today very rare. We could only find one more complete set, in the Bavarian State Library, which also mentions an index, but seems to list a different pagination. A Military University in Munich only houses the first volume and the University Library in Munich seven volumes.  

This copy probably belonged to the author or someone close to him, as the pamphlets include copies of the drafts for the text.
