A first edition of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf is coming to Mullock's auction house in Ludlow on Tuesday April 19 with a £3,000 estimate.
Hitler wrote the autobiography-come-political essay while in Landsberg prison for treason in 1925. 500 books were published in the first edition, with just 20 limited edition copies, of which this is one.
"This is probably the rarest edition of Mein Kampf ever to be offered at auction. It is one of 20 - you can't get much rarer than that," Richard Westwood Brookes, of Mullock's, told the Scotsman.
The auction includes three other rare copies of the book, including a wedding edition produced for a marriage in July 1939, two months before the outbreak of the Second World War.
