Rubbing to front cover and boards, some loss of white print. Generally clean text, with a few passages marked with pencil. Previous ownership inscription on front free endpaper.

(Pastore, 101) It was an abridgment of the full German text.

    I have never encountered a literary production so abominable. – Chaim Weizmann. This early translated copy of Mein Kampf was heavily criticized for its translation. The translator remained anonymous for his own protection and was criticized for leaving out large portions of Hitler’s anti-Semitic rants. Zionists believed it didn’t present an honest picture of the German dictator, while others criticized the work as meandering and unorganized.
