The Coat of Arms of Munchen-Gladbach on the front cover in gilt, with gilt spine lettering and oak leaf and acorns design in gilt on spine. Four raised spine bands, the top edge tinted gray-blue, and the remaining page fore-edges very lightly 'toned' - pretty negligible.

Tissue-guarded frontispiece portrait of Hitler with his facsimile signature below, (xxvi) + (6) + 782 pages, plus 2pp publisher's advertisements at rear. Internally very clean - looks near unused. "Hitler began 'Mein Kampf' while imprisoned for what he considered to be "political crimes" following his failed Putsch in Munich in November 1923. Although Hitler received many visitors initially, he soon devoted himself entirely to the book. As he continued, Hitler realized that it would have to be a two-volume work, with the first volume scheduled for release in early 1925. 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..." .
