This is a set of five volumes of the spectacular 6-3/4 x 9-3/4 inch, very heavily illustrated brown and tan half-leather hardcover series that officially documents the history of the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler. Das Dritte Reich (The Third Reich) was written by Gerd Rühle and published in the 1930s by Hummelverlag of Berlin, Germany. These books provide the most comprehensive documentation and photos available of the important events and the day-by-day milestones of each year in the growth, stabilization and expansion of the political power of the Nazi Party in Germany.
Authorized by the NSDAP, the text portion of these books covers virtually every aspect of the history and personalities of the Nazi Party. Each book contains approximately 500 pages and at the back of each one there is a section of about 100 pages of archival photos, newspaper reproductions, portraits, and ephemera that are simply unavailable elsewhere.
The replicas of Nazi newspapers fold out to a size of about 9-1/2 x 11 inches. There are pages and pages of rare photos of early Nazi Party posters, full-color Nazi flags, standards and medals, anti-Semitic boycott material, the burning of the Reichstag, SS Hilfspolizisten, Konzentrationslager (Concentration Camps), accusations of German atrocities, Reichsparteitag (Nazi State Party Days), the Tannenberg Memorial, the new Reichsautobahn, Winterhilfswerk (WHW), the staging of the Olympics in Berlin and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, portraits of dozens of early Nazi leaders, electioneering and of course, more political victory. Each book has a different portrait of Adolf Hitler as its frontispiece.
Here is a brief list of some of the subjects covered in photographs:
Important Issues of Nazi Newspapers, Early Nazi Membership Cards and Meeting Posters, Nazi Election Ballots, Destruction of German War Material, Early Nazi Meeting Places, Parades and Party Days, Horst Wessel and his Funeral, the Important Documents that Put the Nazis in Power, Anti-Nazi Jewish Propaganda, the Reichschancellery in Berlin, the First Concentration Camps, the Building of the Reichsautobahn, Jewish Declarations of War Against the Nazis and Nazi Boycotts of Jewish Businesses in Germany, Rare Orders and Decorations, Anti-Hitler Editorial Cartoons, the Building of Nazi Housing Developments, Nazi Funerals, Nazi Military Maneuvers, martyrs of the Nazi Memorial at the Feldherrnhalle, Zeppelins, Liberation of the Saarland, Hitler's Genealogy, Introduction of the Arbeitsbuch, Tickets to the Reichsparteitag, 1936 Olympic Material, the German Auto Show, KdF Ships, the Ehrentempel and Führerbau in München, New Flags and Standards of the Armed Forces, Examples of Olympic Tickets, Medals, Postage Stamps and Posters, the Vierjahresplan, the Ordensburgen at Sonthofen, Crössinsee and Vogelsang, the new Olympic Facilities in Berlin, the Party Day Grounds in Nürnberg, Hitler Youth Homes, New German Stamps, and dozens upon dozens of portraits of leading National Socialists.
These are extremely rare books which were published in annual volumes of the same size, color and format. This set of books is fundamental to any study of the subjects of Nazism, Hitler, the Third Reich and its personalities, Nazi medals, orders and decorations, Nazi Party advertising and propaganda, early Reichs Party Days, etc., etc. The text and photos in these books are simply not available elsewhere.
This set of books measures an amazing 7 inches thick and weighs about 12 pounds! There is a total of over 2400 pages of the Nazi Party history of Germany in this set, not counting newspaper reprints, charts, tables and maps. The five books in this set are:
