THE POISONOUS MUSHROOM, PROBABLY THE MOST NOTORIOUS AND ANTI SEMITIC BOOK OF ALL TIME.
This notorious and extremely rare anti semitic Nazi book was published by Julius Streichers Der Sturmer publishing house in Nuremberg in 1938. The book has a hard cover and contains 64 pages, it was produced as a children's story book with many highly detailed coloured illustrations but the story's contained in this book are not Harry Potter or Disney type story's, these story's describe and depict in highly detailed coloured drawings the danger of the Jewish race, the initial story suggests that just like Mushrooms which are dangerous and poisonous so are the Jews, other story's include, How Jewish Traders Cheat, Ingas Visit to a Jewish Doctor, How the Jew Treat there Domestic help, How Two Women were Tricked by Jewish Lawyers, How Jews Torment Animals, Money is the god of the Jews, to name but a few but there are 17 anti Jewish story's in all and all with highly detailed coloured illustrations. The book was originally produced on a limited print run and i believe there was only one printing, very few have survived WW2 most being destroyed by there owners in 1945 for obvious reasons. Complete with modern partial English translation of some of the story's and two photographs, one showing children reading the book in the late 1930's and the second photograph depicts a Sturmer advertisement for the book.[Condition: Near Mint]
