2/4/19 - This is a rare, desirable trans-art style Walther PPK manual. The back of the pamphlet is dated 0542 - meaning May of 1942. These pamphlets are extremely rare and desirable because of the unique trans-art pictures that slowly cut away the interior of a Walther PPk. The trans art is 8 pages in color and the pages open horizontally. After the 8 pages of transart the rest of the pamphlet opens up vertically. This is a very unique design, and a genius idea for the time. The pamphlet has some minor wear and signs of use throughout, but overall is in excellent condition and completely in tact with no binding or page issues. The part of the pamphlet that opens vertically is attached to the rest of the pamphlet. Everything is guaranteed original and authentic.
