This week's Hitler Auction: Mein Kampf - Signed

Hitler's volume, which comes from the first edition of 500 copies, is inscribed to Major Schueler van Kriken and dated Dec. 10, 1925. The auction house has a presale estimate range of $8,000 to $12,000 for the book, which comes from the estate of a Jewish collector.

The book, which combined Hitler's political ideology and autobiography, would appeal to ``serious World War II collectors or Jewish collectors interested in the history of anti- Semitism,'' said Christina Geiger, Bonhams specialist for the sale.

UPDATE: Bidding closed at $18,000!
