Weltdeutsch and Kolonialdeutsch

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for information, out of curiosity, about Adalbert
Baumann's Wede (Weltdeutsch) and Kolonialdeutsch (author/authors
unknown to me).  Both are supposed to be simplified forms of German;
the second, at least, was specifically meant for use in Germany's
overseas colonies.  As someone who's in to Post-Colonial studies I'm
highly curious.

Little information can be found on the net and the local libraries
are no help either.  Anyone out there know anything?
