COMPLETE SET OF THE FIRST UNEXPURGATED ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF HITLER'S INFAMOUS TREATISE. Translated by James Murphy, it is also the first fully illustrated version in English, with many photographs, illustrations, advertisements and examples of British war propaganda throughout. The printing style of covers varies due to production costs; parts 1-7 are printed in red, yellow and black; parts 8-18 in red and black only. The publisher's blurb on front covers is hardly understated: 'the blue-print of German imperialism'; 'the most widely discussed book of the modern world'. It is ironic that the next statement is 'Royalties on all sales will go the British Red Cross Society'. During publication purchasers could choose from five different binding cases: 'when this work is complete you will say 'what a fine edition!' No case is present here, but we have had the set preserved for the future in a handsome, specially commissioned burgundy buckram solander case. COMPLETE SETS IN THE ORIGINAL PARTS ARE VERY SCARCE. Pastore Stanik & Brewster 105; 107.
