Adolf Hitler's autobiography and political manifest. The copy that is offered for sale was published 1939 by Central Publishing House of the NSDAP, Franz Eher, Nachf. in Munich, Germany. In recognition of Hitler's 50th birthday a limited edition, called "Jubiläumsausgabe" (Jubilee Edition) was published. It was a "DeLuxe" version of the regular blue Volksausgabe (People's Edition), but also larger in size. The copy offered here is in very nice condition. The binding is tight and all pages are intact. It has a beautiful dedication in the front (see below). This copy will also be featured in the upcoming book by Stephen Pastore 'Mein Kampf: A Descriptive Bibliography'! For those who might say 'hey, this book had already been listed before' - yes, we sold this copy in early 2017 but our client is facing some unforseen difficulties and asked us to offer it for him on this website. So, here it is again!

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 1926 (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.

Adolf Hitler's original book plate! (which checks out, its printed on an old printing press, not an ink jet reproduction like most of them out there)

On the inside of the cover is the following inscription: 'Found and taken from under a pile of broken furniture & books in Hitler's study 2 August 1945'

The son of Lt.Col. Murray K. Coulter wrote and signed this letter. It comes with the book and gives proper provenance that this book indeed was taken from Hitler's office in the New Reichschancellery in Berlin Voss-Strasse in 1945.
