Hitler: A Study in Tyranny by Alan Bullock
Easton Press Deluxe Edition, 2002
This is a deluxe leather bound edition of the critically acclaimed “Hitler: A Study in Tyranny” published by the Easton Press in 2002. From the publisher, “The book covers the whole of Hitler's life, from his obscure beginnings through his advance to supreme absolute power and then his final decline and suicide in the bunker as Russian shells fell around him. Bullock divides the narrative into three main sections. The first deals with Hitler's early life, his rise to party leader in the years following the First World War, and his gaining of the Chancellorship in 1933. The second part describes how he consolidated his position and extended his power once he was in office. The third and final part is about his actions in the Second World War.”
In his review of the book for Foreign Affairs, Henry L. Roberts wrote, “While it is perhaps impossible for a sane man ever to plumb the full depths of the Hitlerian personality, this scholarly and balanced biography is certainly the best single book on the Führer. Covering the whole of Hitler's life, and making extensive use of the abundant sources--especially the Nuremberg trials--Mr. Bullock, Censor of St. Catherine's, Oxford, has contributed most valuably to our picture of the Nazi era.”
Measuring 9.5" x 6.25" x 2” and containing 848 pages, the book is bound in full leather boards and features silk moiré endpapers, gold gilded covers, gold gilting on the page ends, and a built in silk bookmark.
The book is in FINE condition with very superficial marks to the side gilt. It appears to have never been read. There are no bookplates, markings, or any other signs of previous ownership.
