ORIGINAL ADOLF HITLER SKETCHES DONE WHILE HE WAS IMPRISONED AT

LANDSBERG PRISON

Adolf Hitler. "Hitler Doodles at Landsberg." The future Fuhrer and Reichskanzler of the German Reich doodles his time away between writing Mein Kampf and planning the future of the Party while in prison surrounded by friends, compatriots and assorted hangers-on. These seven images, all self-contained, show Hitler adeptly sketching his surroundings. His bed, day room and the maze-like quality of the fortress at Landsberg (which was actually a very low security jail) are rendered in bold pencil strokes on stiff paper. Two are signed on the verso obviously at the behest of cellmate, Rudolf Hess, and one has his initials on the upper corner. All are mementos as Hitler was wont to do of his journey from schoolboy to Fuhrer, his manifest view that his trial and short prison sentence would lead to bigger and better days ahead, for him at least. Most average 4"x 4". A delightful array looking to be archivally matted and framed together with a glass backing to show the signatures. For a most discerning historian-collector.
