A Third Reich publication with an interesting association: 'Volksgeschichte der Germanen' ('Folk History of the Germanic People') by Kurt Pastenaci (Berlin: Junge Generation Verlag), 1936. 320pp. sm. 8vo. Most interestingly, the front pastedown bears an 'ex libris' bookplate identifying it as the property of the National Treasurer of the Nazi Party, FRANZ XAVER SCHWARZ (1875 - 1947). The front pastedown bears the remnants of a 'Columbia University' sticker, and the title page bears a punch cancel from the 'Columbia University Library'. The private libraries of numerous Third Reich officials have ended up in American archives and libraries; for instance, over three-thousand volumes from Hitler's private library are now in a special locked room in the Library of Congress. Slight damage to the spine, else fine. Due to the lack of provenance, however, the book is sold as-is and estimated accordingly.
