Title: Dioscorides - Codex Vindobonensis Medicus Graccus 1 of the Austrian National Library, Vienna, Twelve Miniatures
Author: uncredited
Publisher: Editions Medicina Rara
Printing Year: c1975

Condition/Details: This work includes 20 botanical prints, unbound as issued in a green cloth-covered box. This is from a limited edition collection, numbered CX. Eight of the prints are tipped-on to green paper and twelve of the prints are tipped-on to cream-colored paper, each stored in its own cream folder. All of the prints are on unevenly cut paper, attached to the green and cream paper along the top edge.

The prints are facsimile reprints of pages of The Vienna Dioscurides or Vienna Dioscorides, an early 6th-century illuminated manuscript of De Materia Medica by Dioscorides in Greek. It is an important and rare example of a late antique scientific text. The 491 vellum folios measure 37 by 30 cm and contain more than 400 pictures of animals and plants, most done in a naturalistic style. The manuscript was created in about 515 and was made for the Byzantine princess Juliana Anicia, the daughter of Emperor Anicius Olybrius. Although it was originally created as a luxury copy, there is some indication that in later centuries it was used daily as a hospital textbook. It includes some annotations in Arabic.
The manuscript was discovered in Istanbul in the 1560s by the Flemish diplomat Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq who was in the employ of Emperor Ferdinand I. The Emperor bought the manuscript and it is now held in the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna. The manuscript was inscribed on UNESCO's Memory of the World Programme Register in 1997 in recognition of its historical significance. (history courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: Mein Kampf - Die Nationalsozialistische Bewegung
Author: Adolf Hitler
Publisher: Berlag Franz Eher Nachfolger
Printing Year: 1927

Condition/Details: This unique 1927 first printing of the second volume of Mein Kampf is bound in crimson cloth with gilded full page edges and bright gilt embossing on the front board and spine. The book is inscribed in blue ink on the front free endpaper, at Christmastime in 1926 by Adolf Hitler to his close friend and resident German priest at the church he then frequented in the Munich area. Signed editions of Mein Kampf are very rare and particularly difficult to find with a dedicated inscription.

This copy is affectionately inscribed to Max Sauerteig who was married to Maria Sauerteig and served as clergyman in a Munich area church during the first part of the twentieth century. Adolf Hitler was a known face in the Sauerteig home as he was a frequent visitor. This book has been consigned to us by the great-granddaughter of Max Sauerteig and we have copies of government documents which establish her lineage back to the Sauerteig name. Our client’s father (grandson of Max Sauerteig) served in the SS during the war. The book was recently discovered in the attic of the family home in Munich, which has been vacant for the past several decades.

Mein Kampf was the political manifesto written by Adolf Hitler. It was his only complete book and became the scripture of National Socialism (Nazism) in Germany’s Third Reich. It was published in two volumes in 1925 and 1927, and an abridged edition appeared in 1930. This second volume, entitled Die Nationalsozialistische Bewegung (The National Socialist Movement), was written after Hitler’s release from prison in December. The volume outlines the political program, including the terrorist methods, which National Socialism was to pursue both in gaining power and in exercising it thereafter in the new Germany. (history courtesy of Encyclopedia Britannica)

The volume shows well with some external age/wear including sunning and rubbing at the extremities. It is solidly bound with clean pages, no other writing or markings are present. The book measures approximately 6.5" x 9.25" and contains 354 pages.

The bi-monthly publication The Push Pin Graphic was a product of their collaboration. Chwast is famous for his commercial artwork, which includes posters, food packaging, magazine covers and publicity art. Often referred to as "the left-handed designer," Chwast's unique graphic design melded social commentary and a distinctive style of illustration. (biography courtesy of Wikipedia)
