ORIGINAL PRE-1945 JAPANESE 2-VOL. EDITION OF ADOLF HITLER’S ‘MEIN KAMPF’
This is the Japanese version of Mein Kampf. This book has a unique binding. It is divided into volume 1 and volume 2.
The translator of this book is “Manabe Ryoichi”. He was an expert of the German language and a translator. He was also working for the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. When an official group of 30 Hitler Youth members visited Japan to support Japan’s bid to host the (cancelled) Summer Olympics in Japan, he acted as an interpreter. He was neither a national socialist nor a radical far-right.
However, after Japan’s defeat in World War II, he was imprisoned as a war criminal in Sugamo Prison (the prison where HIDEKI TOJO and others were imprisoned). A rare find in nice condition that we have never had the privilege to offer on this website.
