I have the English version of this atlas and I have found it to be equal to the best I've seen. I also like the following:
Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Near Side of the Moon By Charles J. Byrne ISBN 1-85233-886-5
These are high resolution photos from the Lunar Orbiter Mission 4. The book excels at showing what things look like that I've searched for.
The book which is the topic of this thread is Atlas of the Moon by Antonin Rukl ISBN: 1-931559-07-4
This book is easier to use and also is great for finding things. I wouldn't even consider purchasing a German version of the book unless I could read the language. The book is pack with information and I simply wouldn't want to be frustrated by not understanding what I was looking at.
I purchased this book used and it was in near perfect condition. I don't remember having any trouble finding either of the books.
