Porsche Christophorus Statistics : the numbers

In one of my visits to the Porsche Archives, I stumbled upon a document written by Richard von Frankenberg about the first 5 years of Porsche Christophorus Magazines to inform the Porsche Management about some statistics of the house magazine.

The document was written by Richard von Frankenberg, February 15 1957.

Considering the number of copies printed, I am not sure about the number of copies of the 5th Christophorus Magazine till the 17th as they were not mentioned in the document. I just made an extrapolation so these numbers are not scientific, just a personal estimation.

I’m still doing more research on the document and on the history of Porsche Christophorus Magazines. If there’s anything that you think that might be usefull for this research, please let me know.
