WITH TEXT IN FOUR LANGUAGES

This excellent 7-3/4 x 10-1/2 inch, 128 page hardcover book was published in 1937 by Heinrich Hoffmann Publishing House in Munich. The rare book is in very good to near mint condition. Prof. Heinrich Hoffmann’s official title was Photo-Bildberichterstatter der Reichsleitung der NSDAP (official photographer of the NSDAP Reich Leadership and Hitlers personal photographer). The book is a photo report about the German contribution to the World Exhibition in Paris 1937. The German pavilion, completed by a 500 ft. tall tower crowned by a huge Third Reich eagle, designed by Albert Speer was, together with the Russian pavilion, the only one that was finished on time. The pavilion was conceived as a monument to “German pride and achievement”. It was to show to the world that a new and powerful Germany had a restored sense of national pride. At night, the pavilion was illuminated by floodlights. The entrance was flanked by two impressive Josef Thorak bronze sculptures. The rich decorated interior showed the very best German craftmanship and was used to display “Made in Germany” products, such as Zeiss optics, Mercedes racing cars, to name just two. The restaurants (one of them was on the roof-garden) were operated by the famous Horcher restaurant from Berlin. There are around 120 photos total and together with the text in four languages this rare book is probably the best original Third Reich book on this subject. Deutschland in Paris is also among the hardest Heinrich Hoffmann books to find.
