The name ”Montblanc” need no introduction in the world of writing instruments and equipment. Since the origin of the company in Berlin in 1906, the firm has manufactured and sold a large range of outstanding fountain pens, pencils, and more recently ballpoint pens and roller balls, to discriminating buyers around the globe. 
Less well known, perhaps, is the history of Montblanc’s relationship with the Danish firm Alfred Th. Øberg A/S, which acted as Montblanc’s agent in Copenhagen for more than 70 years. From the beginning of its association with Montblanc in 1921 to the final corporate liquidation in March of 1992, the Øberg Company imported, marketed, resold and eventually fabricated Montblanc pens in Denmark. 
This monograph tells the story of the little known "Danish connection". 160 pages - high quality print. 

Customer reviews:

“Your book was in the mail today, thanks for your accompanying words and writings! I just did a few short views into the book, but I saw enough to convince me that I will have fun reading it. The book is very fine in layout and everything, and having read that Claus’ grandfather was part of MB states the obviously great interest behind making this book become reality. I hope you will find many more readers of interest, the book is surely worth it. A must for every MB lover, and finally THE book filling the gap to the Rösler / Wallrafen books. Great.”
"We expected an interesting book, but something as unique as this, we could not dream of. The quality of the illustrations are first class and we appreciate especially that even ads, boxes, posters, ink tanks, photographs, tables, ephemera and photographs of mechanisms have received considerable attention. Coffee Table Books are great, but sometimes it's nice to curl up on the sofa with a book without having to put it on a table to read."
"An excellent and very interesting book focusing on the Danish pen business, and Montblanc in particular. A must for pen aficionados with interest in Montblanc".“Great book, excellent seller, better transaction. Don't hesitate! Thumbs up.”
