About this Item

In English. Red cloth, gilt imprint, frontispiece map, 1003 pages. Physically very similar to the 1939 Renal & Hitchcock/Houghton Mifflin edition, with the following exceptions: less smooth, more clothlike material on cover, no mention whatsoever of Reynal & Hitchcock, identical spine design except "Houghton Mifflin Co." instead of "Reynal & Hitchcock" at foot of spine. 1939 copyright (along with Eher Verlag 1920s dates) on copyright page only (no "This Edition is published by arrangement . . ." notice). Spine lightly sunned, pages very lightly age toned, light receding corner turn and a small top margin pressure mark in the vicinity of pages 100-150. A few notes for those attempting to evaluate W.W.II era American editions and this specific copy: 1933: Houghton Mifflin Co. (HM) published a heavily abridged edition with English title "My Battle" (often referred to as the "Dugdale edition" because of the translater's name). 1939: Houghton Mifflin and Stackpole Books simultaneously released unabridged editions. At the same time, HM also licensed Reynal & Hitchcock (R&H) to publish an edition (several translators were involved and this job is often mistakenly attributed to the editorial sponsors) . HM and Stackpole engaged in a copyright fight that lasted several years, with HM/R&H and Stackpole keeping their editions in print (HM eventually wins). 1943: HM released a new translation by Manheim. Most of these versions saw distribution for a number of years and went through a number of printing. The odd exception is the 1939 HM edition offered here, which appears to have seen a single printing in 1939. While it seemingly appeared in tandem with the R&H version, only the latter had the "First American Edition" notation applied. Was the 1939 HM printing a very limited edition intended solely to secure the copyright, and should it be considered the true first edition of the so-called "committee" translation? In any event, a little known rarity in the long and varied history of Mein Kampf editions. Bookseller Inventory # 001388
