A rare edition of Adolf Hitler's political treatise 'Mein Kampf', originating from his library and bearing his personal bookplate. The book was published in Munich in 1937 by Franz Eher Verlag, 782pp. 8vo. It is bound in pebbled red leather and bears an gold embossed national eagle with swastika on the front cover. The spine bears six raised red hubs and a golf embossed title. There are a few trivial dark spots to the front cover,otherwise in excellent condition. The front pastedown bears Hitler's personal 'Ex Libris Adolf Hitler' bookplate. The front flyleaf bears the owner's name and address, apparently one 'Werner Dobbelei'. Whether the recipient was gifted the book by Hitler or chanced upon it later is unknown. This version of 'Mein Kampf' is unknown to us, though it shows no signs of being a rebound copy. The endpapers and pastedowns are all lightly toned, and the leather covers show wear commensurate with age. It is possible that Hitler commissioned a small number of these books as gifts, or that one or more copies were presented to him on some occasion. Especially rare.
