Deutsches Kolonial-Lexikon

Deutsches Kolonial-Lexikon is the German title for the Encyclopedia of German colonies which was published in 1920. The text had been finished by 1914 before World War I but was not printed due to the war. Thus it gives a wide range of information and then official views on the colonies of Germany at the end of its rule.
