The pictures are close-ups showing mainly the Tiger tank but you see some nice stern details on the Siebelfahre as well.
I could only find these two in that book (+ a couple of photos not being Siebelfahre):

The book was rather expensive and not worth buying just for that one photo but it left an impression because it was such a rare sight (for me anyway) to see a German landing craft carrying a tank. I agree the top deck plates of an MFP would be much too thin to support the weight of a tank but maybe the tracks were actually resting on the outer hull supports? I'll have to go back to the hobby store I saw this at to check if the book is still there.
I could only find this picture (top), from Concord: Armor at War 7014 - Panzerwaffe at War (2) Moscow to Berlin (no photos in book 1). Is it a MFP?

The only books are:
"Landungswesen im Deutschland sind 1900" by Randolph Kugler- excellent book but very hard to get.

"Plattbug- Kreuzer" by Gerhard Schneider. Story of artillery carrier/AFPs. Mostly in the Channel but with coverage of MFP development and these craft on other fronts. Also fard to find but newer ( 2000).

Kampf um die Aegis by Peter Schenk is relatively inexpensive and available on Amazon. Great book about Kriegsmarine in the Aegean.

If you are near any of the libraries listed on this page:http://www.worldcat.org/title/landungswesen-in-deutschland-seit-1900/oclc/477060643 you can browse the book. You can also check the site for other libraries that have it available.

Does it say 513 or 313?

Shame most photos sold on Ebay are taken out of context. There's frequently no way of telling where or when it was taken, or by who.

Thumbnails only, but these pages describe photos of Tigers travelling on MFPs to Tunisia.

Only the first 3 Tigers were sent on a ship, the "Aspromante".

Some Siebel-Fähre scans from "Die Wehrmacht". Not much to see, but perhaps interesting for someone.
