Adolf Hitler MEIN KAMPF 1939 First Unexpurgated English-Language Translation Of National Socialist Political Manifesto Anti-Semitic Tract
Estimate: $100 - $250
Description: Title: Mein Kampf - Adolf Hitler Author: Adolf Hitler - Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party (German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP), commonly referred to as the Nazi Party). He was chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and dictator of Nazi Germany (as Führer und Reichskanzler) from 1934 to 1945. Hitler is commonly associated with the rise of fascism in Europe, World War II, and the Holocaust. A decorated veteran of World War I, Hitler joined the German Workers' Party, precursor of the Nazi Party, in 1919, and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923 he attempted a coup d'état, known as the Beer Hall Putsch, in Munich. The failed coup resulted in Hitler's imprisonment, during which time he wrote his memoir, "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained support by promoting Pan-Germanism, antisemitism, and anticommunism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. After his appointment as chancellor in 1933, he transformed the Weimar Republic into the Third Reich, a single-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of Nazism. His avowed aim was to establish a New Order of absolute Nazi German hegemony in continental Europe. Hitler's foreign and domestic policies had the goal of seizing Lebensraum ("living space") for the Germanic people. He oversaw the rearmament of Germany and the invasion of Poland by the Wehrmacht in September 1939, which led to the outbreak of World War II in Europe. Under Hitler's direction, in 1941 German forces and their European allies occupied most of Europe and North Africa. These gains were gradually reversed after 1941, and in 1945 the Allied armies defeated the German army. Hitler's supremacist and racially motivated policies resulted in the systematic murder of eleven million people, including nearly six million Jews. In the final days of the war, during the Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married his long-time mistress, Eva Braun. On 30 April 1945-less than two days later-the two committed suicide to avoid capture by the Red Army, and their corpses were burned. Publisher: Reynal & Hitchcock City: New York Year: 1939 Binding Style: Hardcover Pagination: xxxvi/993 pages Width: 6" Height: 8.75" Book Details: "Mein Kampf" (English: My Struggle or My Battle) is a book by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. It combines elements of autobiography with an exposition of Hitler's political ideology. Volume 1 of Mein Kampf was published in 1925 and Volume 2 in 1926. While Hitler was in power (1933-1945), "Mein Kampf" came to be available in three common editions. The first, the "Volksausgabe" or People's Edition, featured the original cover on the dust jacket and was navy blue underneath with a gold swastika eagle embossed on the cover. The "Hochzeitsausgabe," or Wedding Edition, in a slipcase with the seal of the province embossed in gold onto a parchment-like cover was given free to marrying couples. In 1940, the "Tornister-Ausgabe" was released. This edition was a compact, but unabridged, version in a red cover and was released by the post office available to be sent to loved ones fighting at the front. These three editions combined both volumes into the same book. A special edition was published in 1939 in honour of Hitler's 50th birthday. This edition was known as the "Jubiläumsausgabe," or Anniversary Issue. It came in both dark blue and bright red boards with a gold sword on the cover. This work contained both volumes one and two. It was considered a deluxe version, relative to the smaller and more common "Volksausgabe." The book could also be purchased as a two-volume set during Hitler's reign, and was available in soft cover and hardcover. The soft cover edition contained the original cover (as pictured at the top of this article). The hardcover edition had a leather spine with cloth-covered boards. The cover and spine contained an image of three brown oak leaves. Condition / Notes: This vintage volume is a scarce American printing of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf." This is a first printing from Reynal & Hitchcock, with no additional printings listed on the copyright page. "This is an accurate translation of a book which is likely to remain the most important political tract of our time, and which is now for the first time available in complete form to the American reader. Until now the only version of "Mein Kampf" in English has been a condensation of the complete book, published in 1933, containing less than half of the total text." (opening paragraph of introduction) Volume is bound in red cloth, with stamped gilt lettering to spine. Book shows mild external wear, with spotting to covers. Binding is firm. Pages are clean and without markings. Illustrated with frontispiece map and facsimiles. Book is preserved in transparent plastic cover.
