Edgar Cayce readings. -- [Virginia Beach?] : Edgar Cayce Foundation, c1971-c1993. -- 379 microfiches : negative.

LC Call Number: Microfiche 93/483

Transcripts of thousands of telepathic-clairvoyant readings by Edgar Cayce, the largest collection of psychically received data ever obtained from one man. The most frequent topic in the readings is physical illness, its diagnosis and treatment, but numerous other topics are also covered. Each reading is assigned a number representing the person for whom the reading was given and the reading's place in the sequence of that person's readings. Each reading is preceded by a brief index of topics covered.

A microfiche "master index" is arranged by reading number and gives a corresponding fiche number, but since the collection is arranged by reading number and each fiche has an informative header, the "master index" is of little use. NOTE: Related collections: Edgar Cayce Readings (Microfilm 90/8023) contains the same materials with minor variations (some readings lack the brief topical index, a few have appended relevant newspaper clippings not included in the fiche collection, etc.). The Edgar Cayce Readings (BF1023.C37) is a multi-volume collection of excerpts from the readings topically arranged. Each volume contains a subject index to its contents.

Europaische Beitrage zur Geschichte des Weltkrieges II, 1939-1945 : Luftkrieg (European contributions to the history of World War II, 1939-1945: air war) / Hans Detlef Herhudt von Rohden, editor. -- Fourteen volumes; see notes in LC card in MicRR card catalog, under "Europaische Beitrage..." -- n.p. : 1946- . -- 13 microfilm reels ; 55 microfilm reels.

LC Call Number: Microfilm 1750

Describes the Luftwaffe's participation in World War II. The collection is of unusual importance because most Luftwaffe documents were destroyed before Germany's defeat, and the original documents (commonly called the "von Rohden collection") were returned to West Germany in 1967. They have been difficult to access by American scholars since then. These films contain unique documents, especially after reel 13 of the document section.

Further information on the history of this collection and on other collections of German World War II documents at the Library of Congress may be found in the Microform Reading Room's vertical file under "Rohden," and in the Manuscript Division under the title, Guide to Captured German Documents.

NOTE: Volumes 1-3 and 5-14 in German and English; volume 4 in English only.

An additional 73 reels of documentation is available at the National Archives under the number T-971, as well as an unpublished index to their contents. These additional reels contain much that the Microform Reading Room collection does not have, although they also duplicate many documents in the collection here.
