The book was published in 1943 and contains 784 pages in all.The box or casket that the book is contained in has a matching marble affect with gold embossed state eagle to the center of the lid (there is a small scratch to the center right side of the lid), the interior of the box is white silk and the interior lid is embossed with a gold embossed swastika in a circle of oakleaves. Contained inside the box is an original war time photograph that depicts Robert Ley presenting an identical Mein Kampf book and casket to a high ranking political official, there is no way of knowing if this is the same book but it is a possibility. This is a an extremely high quality presentation edition of Mein Kampf of extreme rarity and really a work of art and it is one of the finest examples i have owned in over 30 years, the only types that might be considered of higher importance are those with special silver or amber covers.
