VERY RARE ORIGINAL 1926(!) COPY

OF ADOLF HITLER's BESTSELLER

Mein Kampf

(My struggle)

HIS BOOK WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1925 IN A NUMBER OF ONLY A FEW HUNDRED COPIES

THE BOOK HERE IS FROM THE SECOND EDITION!

A VERY VERY RARE AND VALUEABLE PIECE OF HISTORY!

this rarity is in very good condition. The first editions of "Mein Kampf" were published in a bigger size than the later editions which had the same size like a standard German bible! As can be seen on the photos above and below, the book has been professionally reinforced on the corners, using the same material as the original cover and the white letters on th eback are faded out. Otherwise very good condition.

This is the 2nd edition, published 1926 by Verlag Franz Eher Nachfolger GmbH in Munich. This publishing house would become the Zentralverlag der NSDAP (Central Publishing House of the Nazi Party) after the seizure of power in 1933. Hitler published his book in two volumes, volume one was published in 1925 and volume two in December 1926. Both books did not sell very well until Hitler was elected in 1933 and it became more or less mandatory for every German household to own a copy of the "Nazi bible" Mein Kampf to show support for the Nazi movement! An estimated 10 million copies of this book were printed until 1945 in a variety of editions, such the blue "Volksausgabe" (Peoples Edition), the "Hochzeitsausgabe" (Marriage Edition) which was handed out to newly wed couples on the day of their marriage or the red "Tornister-ausgabe", a lightweight version printed on thin paper for the soldier at the front plus several DeLuxe editions. Many or most of them were burnt or otherwise destroyed after the Third Reich had collapsed and every original copy of "Mein Kampf" is a valueable addition to anyone's collection of Third Reich history. But copies of one of the first editions, years before Adolf Hitler became the Chancellor of the German Reich are very very hard to find in any condition and will make an important addition to any collection of Adolf Hitler and Third Reich history!

Mein Kampf

(My struggle)

HIS BOOK WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1925 IN A NUMBER OF ONLY A FEW HUNDRED COPIES - THE BOOK HERE IS FROM THE SECOND EDITION! A VERY VERY RARE AND VALUEABLE PIECE OF HISTORY!

Adolf Hitler's autobiography and political manifest. This copy offered for sale here was printed 1926 in the second edition from the Central Publishing house of the NSDAP, Franz Eher, Nachf. in Munich, Germany. Hitler dictated this book to his secretary, Rudolf Hess while imprisoned in Landsberg after the failed 1923 revolution. The first editions (1925 and 1926) were only "Band I" (volume one), "Band II" (volume two) was first published in December 1926! All the "official" Third Reich copies (1933 to 1945) contained both volumes in one book. This very rare 1926 copy is still only volume one as volume two was not even published when this book was printed! When this book first came out it was not a success, noboy cared about the book in 1925 which would almost have had a much longer title. The original title Hitler chose was "Viereinhalb Jahre [des Kampfes] gegen Lüge, Dummheit und Feigheit" (Four and a Half Years [of Struggle] against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice). His Nazi publisher, Max Amann, decided this title was too complicated and had it shortened to Mein Kampf (simply "My Struggle"). Before Hitler became Reichs Chancellor of Germany in 1933, Mein Kampf sold very slowly; but in 1933 alone it sold 1.5 million copies. Although the NSDAP claimed that it was already a huge seller, documents revealed after the end of World War II showed this to be false.

even the photo is different than the photo in the later published editions!
