‘Mein Kampf’ signed by Hitler sold at auction

LOS ANGELES — Two rare, early editions of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” have sold for $64,850 at a Los Angeles auction.

There were 11 bids Thursday for the 1925 and 1926 editions of the book, both of which were signed by Hitler.

Auction manager Laura Yntema at Nate D. Sanders Auctions says the books were purchased by an anonymous U.S. buyer.

According to the auction house, Hitler gave the books to Josef Bauer, an early follower who participated in the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch in Munich.

Volumes of “Mein Kampf” from the 1930s are common, but a copy signed by the author is rare.

The volumes feature Hitler’s signature with best wishes to his friend for the Christmas season.

The sale price includes a 25 percent commission paid to the auction house.
