Covers the history of Bohemian glass over almost 3 centuries.  Describes the collection of the Glassmuseum in Passau (Germany).
The series consists of 7 books. I've chosen 4 of them as these are the most representative for the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period (Band IV-V-VI). Band VII shows where all the glass works were located and has the complete register, which makes it easy to look up information in all 7 books.

4    Lötz auf der Weltausstellung  Paris 1900

cover Lötz 1900.jpg (4501 bytes) After the Loetz company was selected to participate in the Paris World Exhibition in 1900, manager Max von Spaun decided to present a collection that was completely different from the current product range. The Loetz output had been very much influenced by the work of L.C. Tiffany and though this was a great commercial success, he also wanted to lift up the company's artistic reputation. The little known German painter Franz Hofstötter was commissioned to design the range of vases that would yield the Grand Prix and bring the company world fame.
The book shows all the designs of Hofstötter, the high end "blackfeet" models, plus the input of the house designers like Prochaska, who wasn't only responsible for some of the shapes, but also for the highly demanding execution of the Hofstötter decors.

5    Wiener Jugendstil, Sonderauktion
      60. Auktion, Galerie Wolfgang Ketterer München

cover Ketterer.jpg (6445 bytes) This is the catalog of an auction that took place in 1982 at Ketterer's in München.  Over 230 high end Loetz vases and more than 100 pieces of ceramics, lamps and furniture by the highest qualified manufacturers and designers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period were offered for sale. 
It is interesting to see how the description of the different pieces has evolved through the years.  The exact nomenclature of the decors was barely known in these days, nor were the production numbers and the attribution of the design was mostly followed by a question mark.

Unfortunately, this catalog is no longer available.
