Fascinating two-volume set of Hitler's ''Mein Kampf,'' each volume signed ''Adolf Hitler'' by the Nazi Fuhrer following his release from prison for high treason, and shortly after his public speaking ban had been lifted. Both volumes published by Franz Eher Nachfolger: Munich: 1926-1927. Volume II is a first edition and Volume I is a second edition; each volume contains a pre-publication presentation inscription by Hitler to Josef Bauer, one of the first members (#34) of the Nazi party and one of the leaders of the Beer Hall Putsch in 1923, when Hitler and his cohorts attempted to overthrow the Bavarian government by gunpoint. Here, in these volumes, Hitler signs the fly-leaf, sending his best wishes to Bauer for the Christmas season. He dates his autograph inscription 1925 in the first volume, and 1926 in the second. Bound in red cloth boards with gilt lettering, both volumes measure 9'' x 12''. Sunning to backstrips, else very good condition. An ominously signed set of books that futilely warned the world of Hitler's intentions. Made even more scarce as signed in 1925 to a fellow Nazi leader.
