    Hi all, bought a 1939 copy of Mein Kampf with dust cover in German at the local flea market last saturday and was surprised to find the owner's name with a citation glued on the page below it. Anyone any ideas on what it's for? Any help much appreciated. Roland.

    Hi Roland,

    It appears to me that the recipient of this copy of 'Mein Kampf ' worked in the advertising department of the 'Volkischer Beobachter' newspaper as it roughly translates to, 'In recognition of exemplary advertising work for the Volkischer Beobachter.

    Many thanks for the info. The owner's name is something Raddatz, not good at reading German hand writing, and the signature i think is Amann. Cheers, Roland.

    Sorry, but no; please see my above post: Werbearbeit für... does not mean we worked in the advertising department for the VB, but rather that the undertook promotion work for the paper, most likely in finding new subscribers.

    An unusual and interesting edition.
    I'm not sure what these books sell for nowadays,
    but it has to be worth more because of this citation !

    If this was found at a flea market, they may not have
    known it's value. Was it a bargain ?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hi, now you've got me thinkng, I've always liked reading this book in English but have never had a German version so decided to buy this one at 20 pounds, I wonder how much it's actually worth. Cheers, Roland.
