German term or phrase: Faks.-Dr. d. Ausg.
These abbreviations are from a library catalogue. I suspect the book in question of being a reprint or "facsimile" of an older edition. What do these abbreviations stand for, what is the correct full spelling, and what do they mean? Many thanks

English translation:Faksimiliedruck der Ausgabe
Explanation:
I can only agree; this is a "Facsimile print of the edition". Duden, Wörterbuch der Abkürzungen also lists Faks.-Ausg. = Faksimile-Ausgabe. Dr. = Druck according to Duden, Wörterbuch der Abkürzungen.
