VERY RARE ORIGINAL

1928 3rd EDITION VOLUME ONE

& 1927 1st EDITION VOLUME TWO

ADOLF HITLER'S MEIN KAMPF

Adolf Hitler's autobiography and political manifest. The two volumes offered for sale are a 3rd edition of volume one, published in 1928 (only 8,000 copies were printed) and a 1st edition of volume two, published in 1927, both by Central Publishing House of the NSDAP, Franz Eher, Nachf. in Munich, Germany. The binding of both volumes is tight, both show signs of wear, volume one has a crack between spine and front cover, volume two has a slight water damage on the cover. There is no Hitler picture in volume two. This is not missing, there never was one bound into this volume/edition. Because of the condition offered below the usual market price for these rare early edition Mein Kampf copies.

Hitler dictated this book to his secretary, Rudolf Hess while imprisoned in Landsberg after the failed 1923 revolution. The first editions, published in 1925 (Band I or Volume One) and 1927 (Band II or Volume Two) were published in separate volumes. With only a few exceptions (special editions) all subsequent Third Reich editions (1933 to 1945) contained both volumes combined in one book. Very few copies of the first editions have survived. When his book first came out it was not a success, few people 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 1.5 million copies were sold.
