About This Item

München: Hoheneichen - Verlag, 1930. First printing of the official exposition of the NAZI world view. From the library of Radio Munich, with their small ink stamps. Very Good condition. SEE PHOTOS. A square, reasonably tight copy. Tiny brown speckles (light foxing) to a few pages at the beginning and end. Slight waviness to the upper margin of some pages. No stain. No underlining. No highlighting. No margin notes. First Edition (1. Auflage). First printing of the standard work by the Nazis' chief ideologist. The year of publication, 1930, is imprinted on the title page. Bound in the original gilt decorated black cloth. Alfred Rosenberg (1893-1946) was editor of the Nazi party organ, VÖLKISCHER BEOBACHTER. It was his anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, and neo-pagan book, DER MYTHUS DES 20. JAHRHUNDERTS [The Myth of the Twentieth Century], that supplied Adolf Hitler and the Nazis with a philosophical and pseudo-scientific basis for their racist doctrine. In 1933, Rosenberg was appointed foreign affairs secretary of the party. He became minister for the occupied Eastern territories in 1941. Following conviction at the Nuremberg war crimes trials, Rosenberg was executed in 1946. With the possible exception of Hitler's MEIN KAMPF, Rosenberg's DER MYTHUS DES 20. JAHRHUNDERTS was the book that most influenced the German people in their acceptance of Nazi ideology and doctrine. This copy is from the library of Radio Munich, with two small ink stamps: "Eigentum des Radio München." The association with Radio Munich is important for two reasons: 1) Propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis relied heavily on radio to disseminate their ideology and to build support among the German people. 2) Nazi party headquarters was in Munich and Radio Munich was at the epicenter of the Nazi propaganda machine during the Third Reich's early years. In a speech, entitled: The Radio as the Eighth Great Power, given on 18 August 1933, Goebbels said: "Future generations may conclude that the radio had as great an intellectual and spiritual impact on the masses as the printing press… It would not have been possible for us to take power or to use it in the ways we have without the radio... It is no exaggeration to say that the German revolution, at least in the form it took, would have been impossible without... the radio." Hans Fritzsche, a leading Nazi radio broadcaster, wrote: "Without exaggerating, one can say that there is no country in the world where the radio is anywhere near as intensive an intermediary between the government and the people as in Germany."

DAS BUCH DER KÜNDER UND FÜHRER DES DRITTEN REICHES (Munich: Verlag Max Steinebach, 1934), pp. 330-342.
