MEIN KAMPF - Rare Pristine/Uniquely Clamshell-Boxed Copy of The Limited Edition: Signed by David Levinthal - signed or inscribed book

1996, ISBN: 0944092403

Hardcover, First edition, ID: 5592026502

[EAN: 9780944092408], Gebraucht, wie neu, [PU: Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishers, 1996], History|Historiography, Philosophy|Methodology, Photography|Photo-essays & Documentaries, 1st Printing. Signed. 87 pages. Published in 1996. Landmark collection of color photographs on subject. One of the most important photography books of our time. Limited Edition of 3500 copies. Although not called for, this particular copy is signed and comes in the publisher's original clamshell box. An austerely elegant production by David Levinthal and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted on the front cover and red titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Photographs by David Levinthal. Essays by Roger Rosenblatt, Garry Trudeau, and James E. Young. This is Levinthal's second collaboration with Trudeau, the creator of "Doonesbury". Black cloth clamshell box with red titles embossed on spine. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Japan to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents David Levinthal's "Mein Kampf". His sequel/companion volume to "Hitler Moves East" (1977). The latter consists of black-and-white photographs; the present collection is entirely in color. Like his other collections built around compelling themes, "Mein Kampf", whose title is adopted from Adolf Hitler's autobiography/political manifesto, tells an unforgettable photo-narrative about a Past that continues to haunt the Present. It is not possible to imagine a more demonic figure than Hitler and a more evil ideology than Nazism. What makes "Mein Kampf" permanently disturbing is Levinthal's point that Hitler may be long dead, but his legacy is very much alive, is very much with us. Photographing his toy artifacts is an artistic strategy that is now identified with the artist. Levinthal is a collector twice over: First, of vintage toys, which are valuable in and of themselves (Levinthal's photographs would not have the same power if the toys were new or merely replicas, therefore not "collectible"); second, of images by their photographer/collector, who deploys a highly developed technique that enables him to make the toys come, uncannily, to life. As such, Levinthal's body of work is finally about aesthetics versus ethics, the paradox of the aesthetically pleasing photograph (which seduces) despite its ethically horrific subject (which repels). The photographs are beautiful, which is not the same thing as saying they glorify their subject. They do not. Instead, their beauty paradoxically makes us more aware of the fact that evil persists. An absolute "must-have" title for David Levinthal collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by David Levinthal. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great photography book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Although not called for, this copy comes in the publisher's original clamshell box, making its presentation quite special as such, and providing enhanced protection for the book itself. A rare signed copy thus. 59 color plates. One of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DAVID LEVINTHAL TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0944092403.

Mein Kampf
Author:

David Levinthal

Title:

Mein Kampf

ISBN:

Since his first publication in 1977, Hitler Moves East, photographer David Levinthal has explored a panoply of compelling issues in representation. Using toy soldiers, dolls, and other figurines, Levinthal, in Mein Kampf, has created dramatic tableaux which engage the narrative of Hitler's rise to power and the Nazi campaign to wipe out the Jews.,

The angry ranting of an obscure, small-party politician, the first volume of Mein Kampf was virtually ignored when it was originally published in 1925. Likewise the second volume, which appeared in 1926. The book details Hitler's childhood, the "betrayal" of Germany in World War I, the desire for revenge against France, the need for lebensraum for the German people, and the means by which the National Socialist party can gain power. It also includes Hitler's racist agenda and his glorification of the "Aryan" race. The few outside the Nazi party who read it dismissed it as nonsense, not believing that anyone could--or would--carry out its radical, terrorist programs. As Hitler and the Nazis gained power, first party members and then the general public were pressured to buy the book. By the time Hitler became chancellor of the Third Reich in 1933, the book stood atop the German bestseller lists. Had the book been taken seriously when it was first published, perhaps the 20th century would have been very different.

Beyond the anger, hatred, bigotry, and self-aggrandizing, Mein Kampf is saddled with tortured prose, meandering narrative, and tangled metaphors (one person was described as "a thorn in the eyes of venal officials"). That said, it is an incredibly important book. It is foolish to think that the Holocaust could not happen again, especially if World War II and its horrors are forgotten. As an Amazon.com reader has pointed out, "If you want to learn about why the Holocaust happened, you can't avoid reading the words of the man who was most responsible for it happening." Mein Kampf, therefore, must be read as a reminder that evil can all too easily grow. --Sunny Delaney

Final text for the top “Reviews” field: A Message from the Anti-Defamation League: Mein Kampf was Hitler's blueprint for what later became his war for world domination and for the extermination of the Jews and others. Written eight years before he assumed power in Germany, the book lays it all out: his megalomania, his conspiratorial obsession with Jews and his lust for power. For all who claimed they didn't know, all they had to do was read Mein Kampf to know of Hitler's int
