  • $\begingroup$ "and a translation of it" is probably asking a lot for papers of that vintage (or even more recent) in German. $\endgroup$ Oct 22, 2014 at 17:31

    $\begingroup$ Are you aware that the papers of Frobenius were gathered into his Collected Works in the late 1960s? It won't help with a translation, of course, but it means you can find all his papers bound together in these volumes in many university libraries. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Google "Sitzungsberichte der Königlich Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin". The first result you'll get is some type of online repository of the journal. $\endgroup$ Oct 22, 2014 at 5:39
