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 are first editions, published by Franz Eher Nachfolger: Munich: 1925-1927. Each volume is inscribed by Hitler to Philipp Bouhler, one of the first members (#12) 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. Bouhler would ultimately be appointed as one of the few Reichsleiters and as Chief of the Chancellery for Hitler where he led the infamous T4 program. Here, Hitler signs the fly-leaf of Vol. I and the front free endpaper of Vol. II, sending his best wishes to Bouhler for the Christmas season. Volume I translates in full, ''To Herr Philipp Bouhler / in grateful recognition of your loyal work for our movement on the occasion of Christmas 1925 / inscribed most sincerely / Adolf Hitler / Munich, December 24, 1925''. Volume II translates in full, ''To Herr Philipp Bouhler / on the occasion of Christmas inscribed most sincerely as a sign of recognition of your performance of duties / Adolf Hitler / Munich, December 24, 1926''. Rebound in burgundy leather boards with gilt lettering, both volumes measure 6.5'' x 9.25''. Light shelf wear and white-out to title page of Volume I. Also with a brochure about Hitler from 1938, written by Bouhler. An ominously signed set of books that futilely warned the world of Hitler's intentions. Made even more scarce as signed in the mid-1920's to a fellow Nazi leader.
