      There is a nice story to this guidebook. The nazis have forbidden the word"Zoo"in germany, because its no a german word, so it had to dissapper, so the Frankfurt zoo was called now"Tiergarten", but unfortunately, the guidebook was ready before the new law came out, so i has still the word "Zoo" on the cover, and its name is" Führer", Hitler has forbidden to name zooguidebooks "Führer", all zooguidebooks had to be renamed into "Wegweiser" After the second world war, guidebooks could be renamed into"Führer"again.
