Images from the Crown Prince’s Works, Die Österreichisch-ungarische Monarchie in Wort und Bild which is, The Austro-Hungarian Monarchy in Words and Pictures, a 24-volume encyclopaedia, of which I have only volume 2. I bought this volume in Prague, and were it not for the cost of shipping I would gladly buy as many of the other volumes as they had.

I am only including illustrations here that I have reason to think are now out of copright. The full text is available at archive.org, so feel free to use the Comment box under any image in this book to ask me to scan others.
