    I am pretty much involved in old books , printing machines etc...
    So I was send thise film about a special book, not for his contence , but for how it was made. Tought I would share thise on the forum;
    Mein Kampf - Die 1000 Jährige Ausgabe - YouTube
    The 75 pound book was handscribed on 965 sheets of calf velum, in version of fraktur specifically designed by Martin Wilke (1903-1993), bound in thick wooden boards, decorated with an engraved, cast iron plate. The ore came from Dillinger Hütte and was worked on by an unnamed smith from Köln. The work was finished by April 20th 1936, and presented to Fuhrer on his 47th birthday.

    The video above is from a film "Das Buch der Deutschen", that was first shown along with a longer feature "Kaiser von Kalifornien" on the July 21th, 1936. The original footage is stored in the "Bundesrepublik Deutschland" archive at Koblenz.

    Contrary to expectations, the book did not last for a 1000 years, and was lost at the end of the war...much like the third Reich itself.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
