 Prodigiously Rare Hoffman Book Entitled Germany in Paris (Item RAREBOOK 2-1)

DESCRIPTION:  This book is in four languages: French, German, Italian, and English. It is the whole story of the German Third-Reich exhibition in France called “Germany in Paris.” It was the Deutsches Haus or “German House,” or, as often called, “The German Pavilion” and what a spectacular edifice it was. It was designed by Albert Speer, Hitler’s chief architect, with the will and enthusiasm of the Führer, Adolf Hitler. It was considered a new monument to the new National Socialist architectural genre and was considered a prototypical design for future construction in Germany. The German people were justifiably proud of the wonderful building with its exterior and interior magnificence. This was built for the International Exhibition in Paris in 1937, and this extremely rare book lays out fantastic explanations and photos of the German Trade and Industry displays both in words and fantastic photography as only Dr. Hoffman could do. Comprised of 126 pages this book is very complete. The binding is a bit distressed, but holding well. I know of no other book in the world that visits this subject so vividly, if at all! The latest in 1937 of auto motorists, construction and shipping, and the arts are lavishly displayed in plush black-and-white crisp photography. The pictures of the stained-glass windows and other beautiful objects are nothing short of breathtaking. The paintings, the porcelains, the furniture couldn’t have been easily matched by any other culture (magnificence personified!). This book was never marketed or sold; it was presented selectively by the foreign-office committee of the Reich for tourist travel in Berlin. It was probably given to a person who visited the exhibition. Inside the book is a sheet of paper (original) that is separate from the book’s pages that announces this gift with friendly sentiments with an invitation for the receiver to pay a visit to beautiful Germany: “The pleasure at your visit will be ours and we welcome you gratefully and sincerely and it be our earnest endeavor to make your stay as agreeable and enjoyable as possible so that you may take the best impressions home with you.” This invitation is with the four languages just as everything else is in the book. One of the most interesting pictures is of the transparent man; a masterpiece of the German Museum of Hygiene in Dresden, which was later demolished along with multi-thousands of “transparent” people in Dresden by order of the beast, “Bomber Harris,” of England with Churchill’s willing consent (I just thought we needed that footnote.). This is considered one of the rarest books in the N.S. field or in the realm of scarce collector books in general. The price might seem high to you but consider its prodigious rarity. You could look from now to Doomsday and never, never see another copy of this book; it is just that rare, and a wonderful memento of the glorious days of the German Reich's grandeur and its attempt to be a brother nation to all Western lands and peoples. (“Festung Europa”!)

PRICE: $485.00; the rarest and the best!

(Item RAREBOOK 2-4; NSD 18-52; ART 17-24)

DESCRIPTION: STOP! . . . and hopefully reflect on the findings of the N.S. association for the preservation of Aryan culture. What follows is its description and explanation of what constitutes degeneracy in art. This is one of the rarest and most-sought-after books ever published in the Third Reich. Produced in the year 1937 (a banner year for the Third Reich), there was at that time an exhibition in Berlin known as Die Ausstellung “Entartete Kunst” translated as The Degenerate-Art Exhibition. It was actually organized by Adolf Ziegler and the “Party” (The National Socialist German Workers’ Party) and ran from July 19 to November 30, 1937. The exhibit presented 650 so-called “works of art” from German museums and was presented in counterpoint and contrast to the current great German art exhibition. The day before the exhibition started, Hitler delivered a speech declaring merciless war against cultural disintegration by attacking chatterboxes, dilettantes, and art swindlers. Degenerate art was defined as works that insult traditional German mores and cultural tradition or destroy or confuse natural form, or simply reveal a complete absence of adequate manual and artistic skill. One million people attended the exhibition in its first six weeks. A U.S. critic commented, “There are plenty of people, true art lovers in Boston and throughout the U.S., who will stand with and absolutely side with Hitler in this particular purge.” Hitler had a passionate critique of modern art and its practitioners. He (and this author) perceived them to be incompetents, cheats, and madmen! A commission was formed with Adolf Ziegler as its chairman and toured various art museums in several cities seizing 5,238 so-called art pieces that they deemed degenerate showing qualities such as decadence, weakness of character, mental disease, and racial impunity. The commission especially focused on works by ‘artists’ mentioned in avant-garde publications and was aided by some vehement steady opponents of modern art such as the famed art master of the realistic art form, Wolfgang Willrich. Many of the lowest and horrid canvases by such dubious luminaries such as Georg Kolbe, Paul Klee, Marc Chagril, and (“UGH!”) Pablo Picasso abound. About 20,000 persons per day attended the exhibition. On the walls accompanying the oil and watercolor trash were signs proclaiming sentiments and slogans, for example:

*Insolent mockery of the divine (and Christian)
*Revelation of the Jewish racial soul
*Insult to German womanhood
*The ideal–Cretin and Whore
*Deliberate sabotage of national defense
*German farmers–a Yiddish view
*Madness becomes method
*Nature as seen by sick minds
*Even bigwigs dared to call this trash the art of the German people.

All in all, the idea was well carried that modernism was a conspiracy by those who would harm German decency. After the exhibition closed in 1937, the REAL artist, Wolfgang Willrich, put together the volume we now offer. It is basically a summation of the Entartete Kunst exhibition with running commentary from this man who is possibly the greatest artist in realism that Germany had seen since Albrecht Durer. Willrich had published several books that graphically portray the nobility and beauty of the Aryan race and Germans in particular. His illustrations are so vivid, so real, as to be practically spiritual in the physiognomy displayed. No Nordic person who is conscious of his beginnings can look upon Willrich’s painting of Germanic peasant folk, the children, the aged, the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and elite troops without a special pride swelling up in the breast. And of course alternatively the traditional enemy experiences the same emotion that the vampire experiences when suddenly confronted by a crucifix! No art critic or historian could have been better chosen to do a review of the exhibition from the standpoint of critique. Here was Herr Willrich the man considered the shining light of beautiful renderings of humanity looking at the dark side of art, the stuff straight from Hell! The book contains about 170 pages with 64 illustrations. You will notice the Irminsul in the center of the opening title page indicating that this might have been an Ahnenerbe publication and it was published by the J. Lehmanns Verlag in Berlin 1938. This company published several Ahnenerbe-certified books in the 1930s. The book is in fine condition with original dustcover preserved by the former collector who covered it with plastic. Its size is 6 ½ x 9 inches and I assure you it is a very highly sought-after volume throughout Europe, especially in Germany and Austria where a revisionist awakening appears to be taking hold. It is one of the absolutely rarest N.S. books extant today. In 50 years, I have not seen another available. The price is most reasonable considering its content and its extreme rarity.

PRICE: $700.00; At this point in time it is probably unique!

Book Männer und Waffen des deutschen Heeres 1941 (Item RAREBOOK 2-5; ART 18-1; WEHR 33-23)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the best and finest art collection of the entire Second World War in book form. Here we present the war-art etchings of Reich’s artist Josef Arens (1901-1979). A screw, a bolt, the "smallest detail,” everything was registered by the eye of the artist. Arens became a war illustrator in 1939 and Adolf Hitler, who all his life had wanted to embrace art, commissioned him as the official army war artist. Arens progressed right along with the German army, registering with meticulous care all of its heroic actions in his drawings. He took photographs and sketches, which later turned into works of art; all those drawings had targeted the desktop of the Führer, but with the fall of Germany his artistic renderings became war booty. When they advanced on the Rhine, U.S. troops made a POW of this notable German artist and seized his collection of drawings. “I'm against the war. I wanted to show the ruin, the destruction, the waste," Arens declared to his American captors. According to what was reported in the Spanish journal Excelsior, "Arens painted with masterly hands the ravages of war and the heroism of the German soldier.” Why was he held by the Yanks? Because it was deemed by army “intelligence” that his drawings glorified the enemy war effort and although that was a stretch, his drawings did glorify the German military tradition. Adolf Hitler entrusted him to perform a graphical history of the war and the German people were able to learn much about the war through the books like the one we offer here. However, these German drawings were not just ordinary; they were nothing short of spectacular! In addition to the ability to capture detail, the artist was concerned about capturing the reality of the war, and he did think that the war that was forced upon his fatherland was a sublime atrocity in itself: "I tried to paint soldiers as they are. Propaganda does not intervene in my drawings. Everything is presented as I saw it, making use of the sketches made in the field of battle and the photographs that I took,” said Arens. The most amazing thing of lithographs is the pathos, but also the nationalist pride that can be seen in the way that Arens observes the German soldier. In these drawings, admirable revelation is observed in these German soldiers: not merely to the victorious warrior, but also the details to the wondrous and advanced equipment and weapons available through Teutonic ingenuity and scientific advancement that was so far ahead of its time. Arens described himself as a "man of gentle face.” It is not difficult to imagine the artist as he carries his camera, notebook and pencils nestled in every corner, that could give him some security while surveying the scene with suspense and trepidation in his heart while trying to record every detail as he viewed them. From the siege of Rotterdam until the withdrawal in France, each step of the German forces was registered by his pencil. The drawings were hailed at the time as the "most amazing scenes of war that were known to date.” The description of the scenes in the pages of this book are replete with moving passion and with these very limited editions the Germans had demonstrated to the world their excellence at warfare tempered with courage and largely the thought remains that this Deutsche Wehrmacht was viewed at the time as an unbeatable army—terrible at warfare, but always honorable to the last. Please don’t even bother to mention alleged atrocities until you have availed yourself of the knowledge of the same and worst committed by the allied forces against the Germans. Arens’ charcoal drawings sometimes were fierce; for instance, the drawing of the moment in which the artillery soldiers activated a giant mortar, accurately delineated, and it ably exemplifies that Teutonic marshal spirit: The weapon was of such power that some of the gunners used a long lanyard to accelerate the firing and had to be crouching among the weeds rather aware of the mighty impact achieved. Many such superb and moving details appear in the drawings of Josef Arens. The book is in large format and measures 12 by 10 inches. It has 45 pages of text describing one after the other the following drawings and an explanation of the great conflict and the role of the German Wehrmacht Heeres. Then there are 40 full-page illustrations accomplished as only Josef Arens could ever do. The book is in excellent * plus condition and the beautiful cover is crafted in a fine textured cloth material. This without a doubt is the most sought-after art book that chronicles the life and style of the noble German Landser in his element. Vorwärts meiner Kinder!: Field Marshal (Pa-Pa) Blucher, 1813.

Generaloberst “Hans” von Seeckt: Various Ephemera (Item RAREBBOOK 2-5; PERS 5-27; WWI 13-5; WEHR 33-26)

DESCRIPTION: Johannes Friedrich “Hans” von Seeckt (April 1866-December 1936) was an important historical personage and German military officer noted for his organization of the German Army (Reichswehr) during the Weimer Republic. He was a thorough aristocrat. He joined the army in 1885 at the age of 18 and served in the elite Kaiser Alexander Guard Grenadiers and then joined the Prussian General Staff in 1897 at the outbreak of the First World War. Seeckt held the rank of colonel and served as chief of staff in the Third Army Corps. Seeckt marched with the corps in the WWI German offensive and distinguished himself in fighting near Soissons, then in March 1915, he became chief of staff to General von Mackensen of the German Eleventh Army. Seeckt fought in the Gorlice-Tarnów Offensive, where he was credited with engineering Mackensen’s breakthrough and he received the Pour le Mérite, Prussia’s highest military honor. In June 1915, Seeckt was promoted to the rank of general-major and on 1 September he became chief of staff for the Austro-Hungarian Seventh Army in Galicia.

Reichswehr

After the end of the war and the dissolution of the old Imperial Army it fell to Seeckt to organize the new Reichswehr within the strict restrictions composed by the Treaty of Versailles. He successfully laid the basis for a strong Reichswehr and disguised the new leadership effectively with the forbidden general staff, under the name the Truppenamt, or Troop Office. He is also known for this hostile attitude towards the Second Polish Republic, and he was all for seeking an alliance with the Soviet Union against Poland. After seeing encouraging signs from the newly established War Commissar’s Office of Leon Trotsky, Seeckt sent out members of a secret staff to conduct a military alliance with the Soviets, unbeknownst to the Weimar government. After the Allies sent the German government a list of “war criminals” to be tried, Seeckt called a conference of staff officers and department heads on February 9, 1920, and said to them that if the German government refused or was unable to reject the Allied demands, the Reichswehr must oppose this by all means even if this meant the reopening of hostilities! He further said that if the Allies invaded Germany—he believed they would not—then the German army in the West should retire behind the Weser and the Elbe, as this was where defensive positions had already been built. In the East, German troops would invade Poland and attempt to establish contacts with the Soviet Union, wherein they would both march against France and Britain. He added that German war material would now no longer be sold or destroyed and that the army should be refused on paper only. An interior minister of Prussia, Albert Grzesinski, wrote that members of Seeck’s staff said that Seeckt desired a military dictatorship, perhaps headed by Gustav Noske. Seeckt’s role during the Kapp Putsch of March 1920, remains uncertain; he refused to either actively put down the rebellion or cooperate with it. His remark to the leaders of the republic, that “Reichswehr do not fire on Reichswehr”, was controversial. From 1920 to 1926, Seeckt held the position of Chef der Heeresleitung—in fact if not in name, commander of the army of the new Weimar Republic Reichswehr. He was working to build a nonpolitical professional army as a state within a state. He was an admirer of the British concept of a small, highly trained, regular army within which political activity was forbidden. This matched the conditions of the Versailles Treaty which was aimed at creating a long-term, professional army with a ceiling of 100,000 volunteers and without significant reserve; a force which would not be able to challenge the much larger French Army. Seeckt was a monarchist by personal inclination who encouraged the retention of traditional links with the old Imperial Army. With this purpose he designated individual companies and squadrons of the new Reichswehr as the direct successors of particular regiments of the emperor’s army. After Seeckt had met Adolf Hitler for the first time on March 11, 1923, he wrote: “We were as one in our aim; only our paths were different.” However, he firmly resisted Hitler’s Putsch on November 8-9, 1923, insisting that the Bavarian Division of the Reichswehr remain loyal to the Republic. He strongly opposed the Locarno Treaties, which he viewed as appeasement of France and was skeptical of German membership in the League of Nations because he thought it was selling out to West Germany’s connections with Russia. Seeckt was eventually forced to resign on October 9, 1926, after permitting Prince Wilhelm, the grandson of the former emperor, to attend army maneuvers in the uniform of the old Imperial First Guards without first seeking government approval. While running the military, von Seeckt only allowed skilled men to be in the 100,000-man army. He locked them into a mandatory 12 years of confirmed military service with full board and pay, allowing for a stability that rarely existed in the midst of massive economic depression of Germany. He gained the loyalty of his men by paying them six times the amount of a French soldier. Von Seeckt made the training standards of the Reichswehr the toughest in the world. He trained them in antiair and antitank battles by creating wooden weapons and staging mock battles under the guise of training the soldiers for reintroduction into civilian life. Von Seeckt disciplined this small army much differently than past German armies. Rather than beat or shoot a soldier for infractions, von Seeckt forced minor offenders to spend off-hour duties lying under a bed and singing old Lutheran hymns. The chief also had his men taught in seemingly useless topics like horse anatomy and the art of beekeeping to allow them to be citizens with skills as well as military support crews. Later Years: From 1930 to 1932, Seeckt sat in the Reichstag as a member of the DVP, after failing to be adopted as a candidate for the Centre Party. In the presidential election of 1932, he wrote his sister, urging her to vote for Hitler. From 1934 to 1935, he served as an adviser to Chiang Kai-shek. However, on returning to Germany from China he became disillusioned with Hitler. Contained in this offering is a book by Hans von Seeckt entitled Gedanken eines Soldaten (Thoughts of a Soldier). It comprises 157 pages of text with a nice picture of the author on the first page. It’s in almost mint condition and measures 6 ¼ x 9 inches. The book is dedicated in the first inner page to Mr. John Fletcher Hurst commemorating a meeting in Berlin in 1932, and again in 1936, signed by hand in ink by von Seeckt. Also, there is an invitation for the Fletcher family to visit the von Seeckt home at 9:30 in the evening on a Tuesday in March and we assume this was the 1936 meeting when the book was presented. The formal visit was requested by both Herr and Frau von Seeckt. There is a noted music reference. There is also a postcard that pictures some eighteenth-century Chinese artifacts and it is sent with postal cancellation to Mr. J. Fletcher Hurst in Paris. Seeckt wrote in French to Hurst and thanks him for a certain souvenir and he dates it 1935 and hand signs it. Why do I spend so much time and effort to present this particular group of ephemera? Because this old and noble Prussian monarchist was the very epitome of the spirit of Frederick the Great, Blucher, Scharnhorst, et al. When one looks at him with his monocle staring back, you can almost hear the refrain of Deutschland, Deutschland über alles.

Book Im Auf und Ab zur Weltmacht (Item RAREBBOOK 2-6)

DESCRIPTION: We make this title out to be In the Highs and Lows as a World Power (correct me if wrong!). The book is fantastic for the true Germanophile. Its secondary title is Hallmarks of German History and it’s exactly that!!! It comprises 127 pages of wonderfully accomplished lithograph-style prints. The book chronicles in pictures all of Germany’s wars and battles all the way from the Schlacht im Teutoberger Wald where the warriors of Hermann utterly destroyed the Roman Legions who decided to invade the Germanic lands east of the Rhine. The many early battles are beautifully illustrated. Many heroes such as Friedrich Barbarossa, Charlemagne, Martin Luther, Gustaf-Adolf, Der Grosse Kurfurst, Friedrich Wilhelm I, Frederick the Great, Andreas Hofer, Prince August von Preussen, Marshal Blücher, William I, and Bismarck.With all of these Übermensch their greatest battles are shown up to about 1900, with the history of each. No finer a volume of history of the German wars of liberation exists; of that, at least, I am sure. It is a large-format book measuring 12 x 9½ inches and in pretty much perfect condition.

PRICE: $135.00; rare and absolutely great!

Book Antisemitismus der Welt, Anti-Semitism of the World, in Word and Pictures (Item RAREBOOK 2-8; GEN 8-9)

DESCRIPTION: This large volume published in Dresden in 1935 by Dr. Robert Korber and Prof. Dr. Theodor Pugel is considered very rare and the hornbook of the subject. It is a history of anti-Semitism through the ages; from the ancient Greeks, Romans, Teutonic peoples, and on through medieval times. It comprises 326 pages with hundreds of photos and illustrations: many racial comparisons, anti-Jewish cartoons, and charts are shown. The German, British, French, and Russian histories as concerns the Jews are detailed. The leaders of anti-Semitic movements and organizations are studied. The history and the real organizers of the communist revolutions in Russian and Germany are explored and the reasons that men like, the Ceasers Martin Luther, Bismark, Karl Luger, Frederick the Great are remembered for their anti-Semitic statements and writings. For those who cannot read German, the many pictures weave a pattern. The book is in great condition and is an archival treasure. It was not printed by NSDAP sources, but certainly it must have been used in the N.S. schools and study sessions.

SS

Book Alfred Rosenberg, 1893-1946, Der Mythus of the 20th Century from SS Library (Item RAREBOOK 2-9; GEN 9-13; SS 23-5)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is the great book from the party philosopher Alfred Rosenberg. He called this treatise an evaluation of the spiritual confrontation of our age. Rosenberg has been called an inspired and endowed sear and his book A Fountainhead of Fundamental Precepts in the Field of Human History, Religion, and Cultural Philosophy is almost overwhelming in magnitude. The NSDAP view of this immortal work is that “The myth is the myth of the blood, which under the sign of the swastika, released the world revolution, it is the awakening of the racial soul, which after a period of slumber, victoriously put an end to racial chaos.” Rosenberg held several important posts in the NS government including Reichsminister for the newly liberated territories. As such it is duly and historically recorded that Alfred Rosenberg’s constant conflict with the SS and the Reichskomissariats headed by such leaders as Eric Koch over the treatment of Slavs under German occupation. Having been born in a non-German country and having been married to an ethnic Estonian, Rosenberg was appalled at the displacement and enslavement of persons in these occupied eastern countries. In 1945, he was captured by allied troops and tried at the Nuremberg star-chamber trials with every charge the tribunal could throw willy nilly against him. He walked firmly, proudly, to his execution and in the firm conviction that he, like Julius Streicher, was being hanged there at Nuremberg not for actual war crimes, but for what they had said and written. Is it so different now? The book is considered rare on booksellers’ lists.

Book Stätten Deutscher Weihe (Item RAREBOOK 2-10; GEN 10-12)

DESCRIPTION:This is a book tracing the history of the German Reichs from ancient Teutonic times to the awaking of the German Volk under the “new order” (the Third Reich.

Book München vom Wesen Einer Deutschen Stadt, Hauptstadt der Bewegung (Item RAREBOOK 2-11; GEN 10-16)

DESCRIPTION: The book Saga of the Nature of a City, Head City of the Movement has a print cover with a statement that seems to translate to something like: “To say it cannot be done is not the German way!” This book sums up in words and pictures the spirit of this the greatest, most fun-loving, art-appreciating, and spiritual city of Europe. Especially in the Third Reich Munich showed its deep inner spirit. But to the NSDAP and its leader, Adolf Hitler, Munich was the inner soul of the German nation. Berlin was the nation’s capital city, but Munich was the heart and spirit of the National Socialist Bewegung (movement). It was there that the NSDSAP was born. It was there that the Putschists of November 9, 1923, laid down their lives at the Feldherrenhalle. Old Munich is reflected in the gorgeous architecture of the past: churches, palaces, stately castles, and mansions abound and contrast with the new NSDAP buildings that meet in happy union with the glorious past. Buildings by Troost and Speer grace the gorgeous Haupstadt. Featured is the grand parade to open Paul Ludwig Troost’s House of German Art. The parade was the greatest culture lineup the world had even seen. Two thousand years of Germanic art and culture with floats, actors, reenactors, etc. Much of the book is dedicated to German art, old and new. Very unfortunately four of the finest of the picture pages were stuck together at some point during the past 70 years, and dime-sized scars are the result (they would be on the Third Reich’s most important buildings in the Königsplatz) Interestingly enough the captions under the great pictures are in German, Italian, French, and English. The book was published in 1937 and has 133 pages of text and superb pictures, photos, and drawings—culture, culture, and more culture! It measures 8 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches and other than the slight damage to those four pages, the book is in wonderful shape.

Book 1000 Pictures from 75 Years of German History (Item RAREBOOK 2-13; GEN 6-1)

DESCRIPTION: This giant book is possibly the most rare Third Reich book ever offered on the web. It was published (officially) by the military association of Fürstenwalder on the River Spree near Leipzig. No book ever published was as complete with the "whole" story of what the war was about working up through the period 1914-1918: the empires, the struggles, the war, the leaders, the battles, etc., and then the end: the inflation, revolution, the freeing of the people and saving the country by the Freebooters and the N.S. Party and then the coming of the Third Reich and that is broken into three parts: 1, the way to power; 2, the realization of power; 3, the fallen of the struggle. The pictures are no less than phenomenal with some (most) never published before. The section of martyrs of the Kampfzeit is most moving. Men, boys, and some heroic women are pictured--some in their caskets and some with grotesque wounds inflicted by red front gangsters. About 295 individual pictures document those who fell for Führer and Fatherland; mostly SA men who were foully murdered by communists and socialists who were later soundly defeated until they were reinstalled by the 1945 victors. This is a treasure of a book that should be archived for the true edification of future generations. Very rare!

Book München Baut Auf (Item RAREBOOK 2-14; GEN 7-6)

DESCRIPTION: During the era of the National Socialist State Munich was called the Hauptstadt der Bewegung, “Capital of the Movement.” It is not only Germany’s most beautiful city, but is steeped in heroic history as no other. Not only was the Nazi Party born here, but the Führer chose it for the greatest of the planned architectural dreams for a future denied. The book chronicles many of the fantastic architectural genius of Professors Troost and Speer plus the art of many of the NS personalities. Most of the distinct Nazi-inspired buildings were destroyed by official vandals during the bombings and postwar vindictiveness, but many stand even today and are seen in the pages of this book. This is a rare and historically important document.

PRICE: $250.00; Special reduced price $175.00

Unser Familien Buch Album (Item RAREBOOK 2-15; GEN 14-17)

DESCRIPTION: Here in practically stone mint condition is the “Ahnenbuch,” The family book for members of the NSDAP (Nazi Party). These books are certainly rare today especially in this condition -- can you say mint? They had a limited issue and were generally presented by the NSDAP block leader to deserving families for special service to the N.S. community. They were actually serial numbered that’s how important they were. They were a gorgeous artistic production with entry pages for every aspect of the family’s life and participation in the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler. They had the approval of the Rassenpolitischenamtes of the NSDAP.  (See the enameled sign that we feature elsewhere on the site. It is from the above mentioned racial politics office.) The pages are in a beautiful parchment stock. The numerous pages open with a moving statement by the Fuhrer having to do with the importance of the preservation of family history. Followed by three pages of very meaningful sentiment on that particular theme. It then goes into page after page of family heritage records but they were never filled out -- the album is unissued. The professionalism is obvious, the layout is spectacular. There are fold out pages for information and photos from the homeland of the persons. Father and mother, then his/her birth and the births of relatives. His military service, his service to his country and his photos of his father, mother, homeland, marriages, anniversaries of family members. (Places for “Ahnen” (ancestors) his schooling and school friends.) The geography of all kin, with maps. Charts about his teeth, body and health. The first years of his /her children, his school grades, his service in the Hitler Youth or the Bund Das Deutschen Madchen. His occupation histories, his service in the German Labor Corps, awards that he has won, various houses and homes, pictures and experiences  from his labor corp service. Their son, their daughters,  pictures and life story. The children’s first year, their grades in school and the children’s service in HJ-BDM. The son’s service in the Wehrmacht. Their family’s service in the social welfare orginizations. Throughout the pages of the book you will see the logo of the RDK (the Reichs-bund Deutsche Familie) and it is embossed on the back cover. It is a depiction of the National eagle symbol that perches on the letters “RDF”.  The book is held together with large screws so that the book can be easily disassembled for effective and neat entries to be written and photos applied. We have said that the album is practically stone mint.  ‘Stop’ While writing this description I noticed pin head size blotches of wear at the very bottom and the top of the spine (hardly noticeable). Here is an item that could be considered the very essence of the social agenda of the N.S. Movement and what they considered their sacred core valves. Truly a historical Treasure for the Germanophile

Book Entitled Deutschland ich liebe Dich (Germany, I Love You) (Item RAREBOOK 2-16; GEN 14-22)

DESCRIPTION: If there are those who could truly call themselves Germanophiles, they would have to have this book. All of what it means to be Deutsche is summed up beautifully in these pages. The beauty of the land, its people, its monuments, and the exuberance of the Volk in the era of the Third Reich are chronicled here; the Imperium of what we called the West. The book comprises 223 pages of hundreds of beautiful black-and-white images, and was copyrighted in 1935, one of the greatest years of the N.S. Reich. We cannot begin to effectively describe the feeling one gets if he or she is in love with the Vaterland, especially at that time—the time of Germany’s greatest past glory. The noble faces, the friendly people, the grand past all come together in this beautiful volume. On page 117 there is a picture of the newspaper king William Randolph Hearst as he walks the lovely streets of Rothenberg on Taube, while across the main entrance of the town is strung the American flag. The Germans loved America and its people regardless of its communist-inspired president who constantly worked toward a goal of exterminating Germany and Germans. The statuary, the soldiers and sailors, the farm folk, the factory workers, the youth, all bring a picture of vitality and pride in race, nation, and Führer. This is a delightful book, indeed. It has a linen cover and measures 7 ½ x 9 inches and is in very excellent shape.

Greatest Set of Books Ever Written and Produced in the Third Reich (Item RAREBOOK 2-19)

DESCRIPTION: Das Dritte Reich is the title of a set of extremely rare books. We have the pilot edition–“1918-1933.” This one has the asterisk, while the other five volumes are enumerated with Roman numerals I-V and are dated 1933 through 1937, respectively—six volumes in all. These volumes are, in essence, yearbooks. Inside the covers of each book, the publication date corresponds with the outside bindings.

The dagger king, Tom Wittmann, for whom I have much respect and admiration, has a set of these marvelous books on his site “Wittman Antique Militaria” ( http://www.wwiidaggers.com/welcome.htm). He even has the 1938 edition. These books were published annually and the original owner of this set kept up with them through 1937. The books are all leather bound and have finely gilded titles. They are, of course, in the German language and average about 400 pages each; at the end of each book are approximately 50 pages of great black-and-white photographs. If you don’t read German please remember the saying: “One picture is worth a thousand words.” These books contain hundreds and hundreds of great photos many of which this historian has never seen, and I have seen many, many thousands of Third Reich photos. There are countless exciting ones depicting the events of each year of what we call the “Kampfzeit” (the struggle for power) and the early years of the Machtergreifung (the ascension to power) of the National Socialist party. As Wittmann has said, these books are a treasure trove of information especially for someone who reads German. Tom then says this set of books could be an outstanding asset to a military library. He says it is a great opportunity to acquire a very important set of historical volumes. I will add to that the fact that I believe my set is in the finest condition I have ever see, but then in five years I have only seen three sets and mine is by far the best I’ve ever encountered. Now, I don’t like to compare, but the set that Mr. Wittmann has does not come close to the condition of ours. I will suggest that you go to his site and look at the set seen there. If condition speaks volumes to you then I have to ask that you would compare.

Germanische Jugend (Extremely Rare) (Item RAREBOOK 2-20; YOUTH 10-15)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful volume of 63 pages of photos and text having to do with the racial purity of the German youth (Schriftenreihe für Rasse und Reich). Within the pages are beautiful portrait pictures beginning with a great profile picture of the Führer. Then there are many pictures of Aryan youth from Norway, Denmark, and Germany. Some are full page and the photography is phenomenal. You also will see statuary by Arnold Breker that depicts the absolute beauty of Aryan folk. One of my favorite pictures brings out East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet. The picture shows a Waffen-SS soldier in typical camo outfit accepting the surrender of a Mongolian barbarian enlistee in Stalin’s army. There are quite a few pictures of Aryan competitors in Olympic-style sports. There are several full-page pictures of members of the women’s BDM (Bund Deutscher Mädel) in sports achievements. There are quite a few large pictures of Hitler youth and NSKK activities including glider sports. There are two pages devoted to the marine Hitler youth (dramatic!). The book is in large format as are most of the pictures measuring 9½ x 12 inches. I would say that this book is extremely rare and subject matter is extremely important to any person who wishes to view the Third Reich in its true perspective.

Small Book Entitled Hitler, Man and Power (Item RAREBOOK 2-22; AH 29-14)

DESCRIPTION: This small booklet measuring 5½ x 7¾ inches is in very good condition and has 96 pages of text and 19 very good pictures. The book would have been distributed to various news agencies.

It is pretty much a history up until 1932 of the Führer and the NSDAP. The pictures are stunningly clear and it is one of the best books we have seen that illustrates in word and text (in German) the struggle of the NSDA in the time known as the “Kampfzeit.” The book is paperback and in remarkable fine condition for its age of 86 years.

Adolf Hitler’s Last Will and Testament (Item RAREBOOK 2-23; AH 29-28)

DESCRIPTION: In the mid 1960s, an enterprising gentleman undertook a major project in producing these fantastic copies of Hitler’s political testament and his private testament along with an addendum by Paul Joseph Goebbels dated April 29, 1945. The testaments are printed beautifully on an extremely fine parchment-style paper. The documents are featured in a red cardboard cover featuring the N.S. eagle and the title “Adolf Hitler” stamped in gold on the cover. All the document papers are in great shape, but were at one time fastened together with a paper clip. The cover measures 15¼ x 11 inches and is in great condition. Only 100 of these special editions were ever made. The translation is perfect on all the documents and the only part that has seen folding is the first sheet on normal paper that carries the same insignia as the cover.

Wartime Log: A Chronicle from a German Prisoner of War (Item RAREBOOK 2-24; WEHR 35-1)

DESCRIPTION: This seems to be a booklet issued by the POW commission to German prisoners of war that they could use to record their memories of their incarceration. This book with linen cover measures 7 x 9½ x ½ inch thick. It is in immaculate condition and was obviously owned by a prisoner whose first name was Günther. It seems that in 1946, he was still a prisoner in an American POW camp. It opens with a piece of artwork with a sword and keys and the exclamation “Meine Erinnerungen” (My Memories). On the next page there is a long letter (full-page message) dated in 1946 from a comrade in “Läger 4” of the camp. Following this letter are several more from fellow prisoners. On page 13, there is a letter from Fritz Crutina. Fritz says to Günther: “Whenever you think back to Babenhausen, we hope you will remember these happy hours that we had in camp office ‘Hamburg’ and that they helped us to get on in these days; may we remember these happy days. Babenhausen September 3, 1946.” (Babenhausen was the camp that these men were interned in before being sent to America and was under the control of the 106th Infantry Division.) It seems that Günther was a POW in several camps in Germany before he was sent to the U.S. for confinement. Thank God he was not in any of the Rhine camps where IKE, with ugly malice aforethought, purposely changed the prisoner designation and in so doing doomed over a million German prisoners to a horrible death (starvation and lack of any shelter, whatsoever.) Do we still say: “I like IKE”? Below are some of the entries written in the log by POWs—other Deutsche Soldaten—who were with Günther in some of the camps.

Alfons Bartsch says: “May you find the friend that is worth living for; may you find the job for the one you created; may you be proud of your nation forever.” July 30, 1946.
“Respect and trust are the pillars of life. Without respect there can be no trust and without trust there is no love.” August 3, 1946 Helmut Kuhnert.
Erich Riegers says: “Memories are like a paradise in that they stay forever.”
Leopold Rost says: “If you want to be happy in life, help others to be happy, too. The joy of other people’s happiness returns to your heart.”
“Dear Günther, despite your forced removal from Germany, I am thankful that I found in you the best that I could find of a human being. The loss of my health is not a burden to me now. All the very best, your comrade, Gerd Verhoop." G.W. Verhoop Wassennaar (Holland), Lange Kekdam 80.

There are quite a few more letters from there to page 71. Then there is a color picture drawn by Günther introducing several pages of wonderful and humorous cartoons that are nothing short of professional. Folded within the pages is a special cartoon showing a boy playing a musical instrument, while his dog howls out the words of the little ditty. If this man were around today, he could be well paid by a magazine or newspaper as a major cartoonist; he was that good.
