This 10 x 12-1/4 inch, 90 page hardcover book is a special copy of one of the finest examples of Third Reich literature! While the 'standard edition' which was bound in cloth and published as a limited edition, this presentation copy is bound in pig skin with golden lettering on the spine and golden ornament on the cover! This copy was presented to Franz Xaver Schwarz, the Reich Treasurer of the Nazi Party during most of the NSDAP's existence! Franz Xaver Schwarz was one of the earliest NSDAP members and a participant of the failed Beer Hall Putsch. When the Nazi Party was re-established in 1925, Schwarz became member number six! He rebuilt the financial and administrative functions of the party. It was also Schwarz who raised the funds for the publication of Hitler's Mein Kampf. It was also Schwarz who negotiated the purchase of the party headquarters in Munich, the so called 'Braunes Haus' (Brown House) at Brienner Strasse.

The book was published by order of the Mayor of Nürnberg and printed in 1939 in a strictly limited number of copies. The original of this great piece of art was presented to Hitler on occasion of his 50th birthday. The "regular" copies were usually presented to important people by the Chief Mayor (Oberbürgermeister) of Nürnberg. One of these copies can be seen here. Only a few important people received a copy like this one. Heinrich Himmler was one of them - and Franz Xaver Schwarz, who's copy is offered for sale here!

"The Mayor of the city of the Reich Party Days Nuremberg presents this copy to Reich Treasurer Schwarz"

The heavily illustrated book contains quotations of celebrities from old and new Nuremberg such as Kaiser (Emperor) Friedrich II, Walther von der Vogelweide, Tanhäuser, Kaiser (Emperor) Karl IV, Papst (Pope) Pius II, Ulrich von Hutten, Philipp Melanchthon, Martin Luther, Hans Sachs, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Ludwig König von Bayern (King of Bavaria), Richard Wagner and others. While all of those who where important enough to make it into this book got one or two pages, Führer and Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler gets seven pages! Every single page contains great artwork and ornaments, we have rarely seen anything printed between 1933 and 1945 that was so beautifully made! This VERY special book will make an important addition to anyones collection of Third Reich and German history and it will be a gemstone in anyones collection of Reich Party Day memorabilia.

Quotation of Adolf Hitler from the 1936 Reichsparteitag (Reich Party Days): "And again we experience the wonderful contrast between the old and new beauty of this city. But we know that in only a few years both will melt together to a new Nürnberg." Hitler meant the contrast between the old architecture of Nuremberg and the new Nazi buildings on the Party Day Grounds. This is very well illustrated on the page above where the medieval town Nuremberg is "crowned" by the new Grand Stand of the Reich Party Day Grounds with its huge swastika at the top!

The page above contains a Hitler quotation of a speech he held on the Reichsparteitag Gross-deutschland, the last Reich Party Days that took place in 1938. Hitler expresses the importance Nuremberg had in the past when the Reich Jewels were stored and guarded here and that today the impressive Reich Party Day buildings show the power and strenght of the new German Reich.
