A SELECTION OF RARE ORIGINAL 1930 – 1943 EDITIONS OF THE VOLKSAUSGABE (PEOPLE’S EDITION) OF ADOLF HITLER’S BESTSELLER “MEIN KAMPF”

Adolf Hitler’s autobiography and political manifest. The copies that are offered for sale are all the People’s Edition or Volksausgabe, published by Central Publishing House of the NSDAP, Franz Eher, Nachf. The Volksausgabe was smaller in size than the earlier editions. In fact, it now had the same size as a standard German bible. This was no coincidence, the Nazi’s goal was that Mein Kampf would eventually replace the bible in every German household.

Hitler dictated this book to his secretary, Rudolf Hess while imprisoned in Landsberg after the failed 1923 revolution. The first editions (1925 and 1926) were only “Band I” (volume one), “Band II” (volume two) was first published in December 1926! All the “official” Third Reich copies (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 Reich Chancellor of Germany in 1933, Mein Kampf sold very slowly; but in 1933 alone 1.5 million copies were sold.
