Description
The title of this volume can translated “the refrigeration technician’s calendar.” It was prepared in Germany by Georg Göttsche of Hamburg-Altona. Gottsche was a consulting engineer, public employee, and expert on refrigeration. According to a review in a British journal of an earlier version of the annual publication, the book includes not only a mass of information common to engineering and chemistry but specific discussion of the management of refrigeration machinery and plants.
This example of the book was owned by the German- American statistician, mathematician and computer pioneer Carl Hammer (1914-2004).
