The catalogue is a 12 page stapled booklet measuring approx 7 1/4 x 10 3/8 inches, printed in black on light green paper. The front page has the identifiers "0115/E", "5000. IX. 28. R." and "Printed in Bavaria" on the top right, bottom left and bottom right respectively.
The front features the scales logo and company details at the top, followed by text of construction and care information for the slide rules.
Inside are 6 pages describing 26 slide rule models of various types with 13 illustrations. 10cm, 12.5cm, 25cm and 50cm scale lengths are featured, from 'Standard', 'Student', 'Reitz', 'Electrical', 'School', 'Advertisement' and several specialist ('Baur', 'Hohenner' and calliper cursor) scale types.
Next is a page of available cursors with illustrations - 1 line (2 types), 3 line (2 types), magnifying No 2 (3 types) and magnifying No 1 (1 type).
