    No Binding. Condition: Good. Original pamphlet containing a speech printed in black text on light brown paper. No date, circa July 14, 1939. 8 1/4" x 11 3/4." Unpaginated, eight pages, complete. Printed by "M. Muller & Sohn K.G." in Berlin, Germany. Horizontal and vertical fold lines. Paper is clean and intact overall but is fragile and may be browned. Chipping in the lower-right corner not affecting text. Multiple small closed tears at the edges. A Good copy. Please note there are pro-Nazi sentiments throughout this publication. This is a Nazi speech that first appeared in Volkischer Beobachter, the Nazi newspaper, on July 14, 1939, about two months before the beginning of World War II. Addressed to Stephen King-Hall (1893-1966), a British naval officer, politician, and Member of Parliament. Vitriol, insults, and criticism against King-Hall and Britain in general abound in this caustic reply by Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945), a German Nazi politician, chief propagandist of the Nazi Party, and Reich Minister of Propaganda from 1933-1945. Goebbels calls Britain hypocritical for its imperialistic actions in the past. He mentions Britain's military and political campaigns dating back centuries as well as those from World War I onward.

  • No Binding. Condition: Good. Original publication containing a speech and memorandum printed in black text on light brown paper. Both are dated September 3, 1939. 8 1/2" x 9 3/4." Four pages (one leaf folded in half and printed on all sides), complete. Printed by "M. Muller & Sohn K.G." in Berlin, Germany. Paper is fragile and may be browned. Multiple closed tears at the spine and fore-edge, with the largest measuring about 1." A Good copy. Please note there are pro-Nazi sentiments throughout this publication. This is a German Nazi publication containing one speech, "Proclamation of the Fuhrer to the German People" by Adolf Hitler and a memorandum, "Memorandum from the German Government, handed to the British Ambassador by the Reich Minister for Foreign Affairs." Both the speech and memorandum are dated September 3, 1939, just two days after the beginning of World War II. The general theme of Hitler's speech is placing blame on Britain for Germany's hardships with its "encirclement policy." Hitler also blames "that stratum of Jewish and plutocratic democracy" and Poland. In the memorandum, Germany threatens going to war with Britain should the latter not reply by September 3, 1939. The memorandum reiterates Germany's complaints against Britain and mentions the Treaty of Versailles and Britain's alliance with Poland.
