The album was issued by the Danziger Tabaksmonopol and shows the arms of countries, colonies and subdivisions. It includes f.e. the Swiss cantons, the Republics in the USSR, the Indian Princely States, and the provinces/states of the USA, Argentina and Brasil. The arms are of high quality and this album is the only album known to me showing so many subdivisions of countries. It does not contain city arms.
The images could be collected in the packages of the cigarettes of the company.
The large album contains 10-12 images of the arms on the right side, and some historical or other notes on the left pages.
The same images were also used in a later 1933 album Länderwappen und Nationalfarben by Garbaty, with more (306) images. The corresponding texts seem to be identical. In this album several US and Brazilian State arms were added, which were not part in the Danziger Album.
