. XVI, 392, (2), [30 - advertisements] pp. + frontispiece-portrait of Hitler; XI, [1], 354, [2, - advertisements] pp. Both volumes fully complete with both half-titles as well as the portrait in volume one and the 30 pp. of advertisements.

Scarce first edition, first issue of this book, being fateful for the history of the 20th century. "Mein Kampf must rank as one of the most widely distributed and translated books in the world. By 1945 the German editions had reached a total circulation of about ten million copies and the book had been translated into sixteen languages." (Pastore, p. 42).

The first edition of Volume 1 was printed in an edition of 10.000 copies only, and, as almost all copies were destroyed after WWII, it is now a true scarcity.


Synopsis

Mein Kampf is a 1925 autobiographical manifesto by Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler. The work describes the process by which Hitler became antisemitic and outlines his political ideology and future plans for Germany.  Hitler began the book while imprisoned, following his failed Putsch in Munich in November 1923. The governor of Landsberg noted at the time that "he [Hitler] hopes the book will run into many editions, thus enabling him to fulfill his financial obligations and to defray the expenses incurred at the time of his trial." After slow initial sales, the book became a bestseller in Germany following Hitler's rise to power in 1933
