Roughly equivalent to the Congressional Record and the Serial Set in one, this title began in March 1871 and ran through 1933. It is the collected edition of proceedings issued daily during each legislative session of the body which succeeded the Reichstag of the North German Confederation. Each session's debates ("Stenographische Berichte," including question and answer periods and plenary decisions) are accompanied by supplementary volumes with the title "Anlagen." These include legislative bills, reports of committees and party groups, formal inquiries and responses, etc. Most of the Anlagen are numbered with the main volumes (1887-1889/90 also carry separate numbers; 1890/91-1905/06 are numbered separately only). Volumes for 1907-1933 are called volumes 227-458, in a continuous numbering scheme originating with proceedings of parliamentary bodies antedating the German Reichstag, and including both the debates and volumes supplementary to the debates. Volumes 326-458 (1919-1933) relate essentially to the Weimar Republic, and include proceedings of the National Constituent Assembly (volumes 326-343, 1919-1920) which wrote the Weimar constitution.
