1931 DR. JOSEPH GOEBBELS SIGNED BOOK TO HITLER’S DEPUTY RUDOLF HESS
FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY
Dr. Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945) Nazi Minister of Propaganda, Gauleiter of Berlin and with Hitler from the earliest days, a master of manipulation of the masses who took his life and those of his family members in the last days of the war. His book: ‘Kampf um Berlin’ (‘Fight for Berlin’) (Munich: Franz Eher Nachf.), 1932. 287pp. 8vo., black boards. On the half title page Goebbels pens an inscription to Party secretary and Reichsminister, RUDOLF HESS, in full: ‘In cordial camaraderie, Dr. Goebbels 19.XII.31’. Hess’ last name is penciled in at the top right of the first flyleaf, possibly as a reminder to Goebbels for whom this particular book was to be inscribed, or less likely, was written by Hess himself. The top page edges are decorated in a silver finish. Slight bend to the spine at the top, else very good. This personal item has been carried down through the Hess family over the years and was purchased from a direct descendent of Rudolf Hess. The book was officially available in 1932 and Goebbels gifted this book to Hess in late December of 1931, meaning that Hess was one of the first who owned a copy of Goebbels’ book.
