Image Collection of the German Colonial Society at the University Library of Frankfurt
Deutsches Kolonial-Lexikon
Description

This archive at the University of Frankfurt [Germany] contains ephemera of the members of the German Colonial Society (Deutsche Kolonialgesellschaft), founded in 1877. Its members collected books, journals, and photographs of their activities and of the interests of Germans around the world, from its beginning until its dissolution in 1943. The 50,000 digitized slides, photographs, and book illustrations from the archive mostly document late 19th and early 20th-century Africa. The bulk of the images pertain to these countries (in ranked order of number of images present in the database): Togo, Cameroon, Namibia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, China, Papua New Guinea, Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, USA and Canada, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Samoa. The images in the photo archive may be searched by Place, Subject, Person, Photographer, and/or Ethnic Group. The website also includes the three-volume [in German] German Colonial Dictionary (Heinrich Schnee, ed. Deutsches Kolonial-Lexikon. Leipzig: Quelle & Meyer 1920). The website is in German, but the search page for the image archive has an alternative English-language interface.

Jacoby
Brill Online Reference Works
Description

Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker continued is the expansion of Felix Jacoby's monumental work on ancient fragmentary historians, Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker, which was published between 1923 and 1958. Before his death in 1959, Jacoby had managed to complete the first three out of the six parts he had initially planned, namely (I) Genealogy and Mythography, (II) Zeitgeschichte (political-military history) and (III) Horography and Ethnography. Other researchers then set out to continue Jacoby's massive task and add the parts the initial author had not been able to publish himself. The publication of Die Fragmente der griechischen Historiker Part V on Geography is in the hands of chief editor Hans-Joachim Gehrke (Berlin). Eventually, part five will be published in print; in the meantime Brill's online edition provides access to the rich materials already available. In addition, Brill's online edition of FGrHist V will be regularly updated and expanded.

Description

Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker Continued is the continuation of Felix Jacoby's monumental work on ancient fragmentary historians, Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker, which was published between 1923 and 1958. Before his death in 1959, Jacoby had managed to complete the first three out of the six parts he had initially planned, namely (I) Genealogy and Mythography, (II) Zeitgeschichte (political-military history) and (III) Horography and Ethnography. Other researchers then set out to continue Jacoby's massive task and add the parts the initial author had not been able to publish himself. In 1998-1999 three fascicles of Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker Part IV A (Biography ) were published under the supervision of chief editor Guido Schepens (Leuven). Currently, the further publication of FGrHist IV is undertaken by chief editor Stefan Schorn (Leuven). Members of the Editorial Board are G. Arrighetti (Pisa), M. Erler (Würzburg) and G. Schepens (Leuven). Individual sections or subsections have been assigned to various section editors. Eventually, part IV will be published in print; in the meantime Brill's online edition provides access to the rich materials already available. In addition to that, Brill's online edition of FGrHist IV will be regularly updated and expanded.

Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker Part I-III

Alternative Titles
Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker
FGrHist
Brill Online Reference Works
Description

Felix Jacoby (1876-1959) edited, over many years, the “fragments” of the Greek historians who are not preserved complete: that is, quotations from their works in other writers. In his multi-volume work, Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker (for which he requested the abbreviation FGrHist) he created one of the stupendous research sources in the field of ancient history. The work outlived two world wars, Jacoby's forced retirement from his chair at the University of Kiel, his exile from his native land, his return to Germany, and the death of his beloved and faithful companion and helper, his wife. The appearance of this work in the modern form on Jacoby Online offers an opportunity to review the life and career of this great scholar and the organization of his complex masterpiece.
