Help required

  I wonder if anyone can help the person below with his query on an Otto Monsted book ? As we have posted before ...
 
"Otto Monsted was a Dane went into partnership with local man John Broomer, operating a margarine factory at Godley, (in an old hat factory) near Hyde. Broomer sold his share of the business shortly after but is credited for having established the first margarine works in Britain".

 "Denmark, A brief survey"

Dear sirs:  One of the several books that were left to me by my father-in-law, Edgar Jepsen, is a booklet (title above) published under the auspices of the Otto Monsted Foundation, Copenhagen, Denmark.  Printed by Egmont H. Petersen, by Appointment Printers to H.M. the King of Denmark.  Drawings are by A. Sikker Hansen.
I would appreciate any information you might be able to give me re this booklet. For instance – it has no publish date and no authors name.
     Thank you for any information you may have.

Suggest you write it the library at Copenhagen. They may be able to give you some information about the book or the Otto Munstead foundation.
