Full Description

Folio. 132+(4)pp, incl. col. frontis and numerous actual mounted photographs, 2 photo plates. Publisher’s gilt-stamped cloth, burn-mark to lower cover, one corner bumped and slightly cracked. Some browning, not affecting photo ills. Roderick Gradidge’s copy.

A complete cigarette card album with more than a hundred actual mounted photographs showing the Führer in various rôles (statesman, countryman, father-figure, soldier, diplomat, architect etc.), with contributions from Goering, Goebbels and Hess. There is also a celebration of the life of Julius Schreck, Hitler’s chauffeur who died shortly before publication (one of the few people Hitler was genuinely fond of), and reproductions of Hitler’s own mediocre watercolour drawings.
