Pollischansky Verlag (Austria); First & oldest work & specials (serie 1)
Pollischansky Verlag was an active printer. From 1970 till 1991 they publish no less then 5 different Prinz Eisenherz series.
For a lot of people all these series are very confusing, therefore I start with an explanation for each serie.
See for each serie the special paragraph.
Serie 1: The old work & specials. Pollischansky Verlag started with reprinting the old work from
Badische Verlag (see their paragraph). This reprint of page 1-879 in black & white is published between 1970-1975 in 6 books.
See below on this page.
Serie 2: The normal series. Between 1975 and 1985 they publish page 880-2553 in full color in 43 books. Because of the first 6 books in black& white (serie 1) these books are numbered 7-50. There are two prints of at least the first 26 books. Unfortunally this has resulted in different frontcovers for both prints.
Serie 3: The Sonderband ausgabe. From 1975 to 1980 Pollischansky decided to reprint the first 6 black & white books (serie 1), but now in full color and in a normal comic book amount of pages (48). This resulted in the Sonderausgabe, book 1-16. Allthough there are more books (as in serie 1), we still talk about the 1-879 plates. There is only one print, lucky enough!
Serie 4: The goldene ausgabe. Between 1983-1985 Pollischansky did publish 5 books in the Goldene ausgabe. These are reprints of the first years of Prince Valiant, in a special edition and in color.
Serie 5: The comic Gallary. Pollischansky Verlag started with reprinting the old black and white pages in the Comic Gallary serie (printing between 1977-1991). There are 12 books, each book containing 1 annual year of Sunday pages, starting with 1937.
This is the 1st serie of Pollischansky; the Oldest ausgabe. This serie is published between 1970 and 1975 and include
the plates 1-879, but in black & white, in 6 volumes. These are direct reprints of the old work from Badische Verlag
(see their paragraph for more information). Value around 40 Euro for each book.
