Adolf Hitler signed Mein Kampf could make in excess of $35,000

A signed first edition copy of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf is to lead a sale at Nate D Sanders that closes on March 26.

The lot carries a minimum bid of $35,000.

Adolf Hitler Kampf
The signed copy of Mein Kampf is adressed to high ranking Nazi Philipp Bouhler

It's inscribed: ''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''.

During this time, Hitler had recently been released from prison and was rebuilding the Nazi party. Bouhler was an enthusiastic early member and assisted Hitler in his meteoric rise to power. He had also been arrested and imprisoned for his part in the Beer Hall Putsch.  

He is best known as the SS officer responsible for implementing the Aktion T4 programme (1939-1941), which ordered the euthanasia of thousands of mentally ill and handicapped patients across Germany.

Another Hitler-inscribed first edition copy of Mein Kampf sold for $64,5000 at Nate D Sanders in February last year.

The sale will also feature a painting by Hitler, which carries a minimum bid of $30,000.

Hitler produced the work in 1912, while he was attempting to build a career as an artist in Vienna. It displays a stamp on the reverse from the gallery of Samuel Morgenstern.

Ironically, Morgenstern - one of the few people who felt Hitler displayed potential as an artist - was Jewish.

The gallery was seized in 1939, shortly after the German annexation of Austria. Morgenstern sent Hitler a personal plea for clemency, which was ignored. He was sent along with his wife to the Lodz ghetto in Poland, where he died in 1943.
