Germany, NSDAP. A Special Amber-Bound Edition of Mein Kampf; Estate of Arthur Seyss-Inquart

(Mein Kampf Sonderausgabe). A unique and desirable 1939 edition of Mein Kampf, from the estate of SS-Obergruppenführer Arthur Seyss-Inquart, Reichskommissar for the occupied Netherlands. The book is presented in a white card stock binding, with the cover adorned by 15 amber panels within a narrow multi-piece amber frame. The cover features a central raised panel bearing an inscription of “A.H. MEIN KAMPF”. Each corner features a raised swastika, also of amber construction. Affixed to the reverse of the card stock cover are four further amber swastikas, similarly distributed at each corner. Riveted to the interior of the reverse cover is a bronze snap button with a functional hinge, bearing an amber plaque etched with three Wolfsangel runes. The button meets a bronze stud emanating from the amber front cover, securely closing the book when not in use. The interior features a glossed page with a black-and-white photograph of AH, above a facsimile signature. The photograph is protected by a sheet of wax paper. The remainder of the book consists of 781 pages of both the first and second books of Mein Kampf, inscribed in black Fraktur script. The final page features a recommended list of books on the NSDAP and Jewish issues, complete with pricing. The book is published as an updated 1939 edition by Zentralverlag der NSDAP, the official publishing house of the NSDAP in Munich. It measures 140 mm (w) x 192 mm (h). Minor chipping is evident to the amber elements, but this rare and personalized book is in an overall extremely fine condition.

Footnote: Arthur Seyß-Inquart was born on July 22, 1892 in the village of Stannern (present-day Stonařov, southern Czech Republic) near the town of Iglau (Jihlava). This was a German speaking community within a Czech dominated area in Moravia, at the time part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. The family moved to Vienna in 1907.

 

Seyß-Inquart began to study law at the university of Vienna, and earned his degree during the First War in 1917 while recovering from being wounded. As a soldier in the Austro-Hungarian army he saw action in Russia, Romania, and Italy. He received several bravery decorations and at the end of the war held the rank of Oberleutnant (first lieutenant). 

 

After the war, Seyß-Inquart developed close ties with several right wing and fascist organisations, among them the Vaterländische Front (Fatherland Front). He became a successful lawyer and had his own practice since 1921. In 1933, Seyß-Inquart went into Austrian politics and joined the cabinet of chancellor Engelbert Dollfuß.

 

Through growing influence and support by non other than A.H. himself, Seyß-Inquart eventually became Austrian Minister of the Interior in February of 1938. With the looming annexation of Austria by Germany in March of the same year, Austrian chancellor Schuschnigg stepped down. Seyß-Inquart was chosen as his successor due to immense pressure applied on the Austrian government by the NSDAP. 

 

He served in this position for less than two days, until the Anschluss was completed. Seyß-Inquart signed the documents that legalised the annexation of Austria by Germany. After his office had ceased to exist, he was named Reichsstatthalter (Reich Governor) of the Ostmark, the newly created province that Austria had become as part of Greater Germany. 

 

Being a fanatical anti-Semite, Seyß-Inquart almost immediately ordered the confiscation of Jewish property and had the Austrian Jews sent to concentration camps. He received the honorary SS rank of Gruppenführer in May of 1939, and would go on to become an SS-Obergruppenführer in 1941.

 

After the attack on Poland at the beginning of the Second War, Seyß-Inquart was named deputy to Hans Frank, the General Governor of occupied Poland. He supported Frank in the deportation of Polish Jews. Seyß-Inquart was also aware of the systematic murder of Polish intellectuals by the German secret service “Abwehr”.

 

In May of 1940, A.H. named Seyß-Inquart Reich Commissioner of the Netherlands. His policies concerning the Dutch Jews were no different than his policies had been concerning the Jews in Austria and Poland, in that they were ousted from governmental, and leading press and industry positions, their property seized, before being sent to concentration camps. Of the 140,000 Jews that were registered in the Netherlands in 1941, only 30,000 survived the war.

 

During his reign of terror, Seyß-Inquart also authorized the execution of at least 800 people, ranging from political prisoners to resistance fighters. At the end of the war, he was arrested by Allied forces and became one of the 24 defendants during the Nuremberg trials against the major war criminals. Seyß-Inquart was found guilty in three out of four charges and executed by hanging on October 16, 1946.
