These are among the rarest Third Reich magazines. They are nice, complete examples of the first six issues of the fanciest art magazine published during the Third Reich in Nazi Germany - Die Kunst im Dritten Reich (The Arts in the Third Reich). They are Volume 1, Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 dated January, February, March, April, May and June 1937.
This hardcover book was bound in Germany for a magazine subscriber or library and as is nearly always done in Germany, the covers of the individual magazines are removed and they are bound in consecutive order in book form.
Most people with an interest in the German Third Reich are familiar with the magazine Die Kunst im Dritten Reich
(the name was changed to Die Kunst im Deutschen Reich
in 1939) but almost none have ever seen even one of the first six issues.
The first six issues of Die Kunst im Dritten Reich
were considerably smaller than those published from July 1937 onward. They measure 8-1/4 x 11-1/4 inches and contain 32 pages of articles and many full-page illustrations.
The magazine eventually became THE national art magazine in Hitler’s Germany, but the first issues were sponsored by Gauleiter Adolf Wagner and published by Professor Klein, architect Albert Speer
and Professor Leonhard Gall
at the Nazi Party’s Central Publishing House, Franz Eher Nachfolger
in München (Munich).
These January through June 1937 issues of Die Kunst im Dritten Reich contain articles on Professor Klein and Professor Leonhard Gall, Professor Hans Schweitzer-Mjölnir, Ordensburg Vogelsang, the work of Professor Clemens Klotz, the Hindenburg Memorial at Tannenberg and uncountable images:
a Führer bust by Professor Klein, the Eternal Guard at the Honor Temple of Party Martyrs on the Königsplatz in Munich, the Olympic Stadium in Berlin
, the Haupttribune
at the Nazi Party Day Grounds in Nürnberg
, interiors of the Reichskanzlei
in Berlin, Wackerle sculptures, a Schmid-Ehmen eagle, views of the Reichsautobahn
, a tapestry in a Luftwaffe Kasino
, a painting of Hermann Göring in his Luftwaffe uniform by Conrad Hommel, bronzes from the Berghof
, medals by the renowned Professor Richard Klein, the Führerbau
, Braunes Haus
, House of German Art and Ehrentempel
in Munich, the fountains and gardens at the Münchener Stadtpark, as well as pictures of pottery, glassware, furniture, tapestries, baskets, house designs, and so on.
The last page in this 8-1/2 x 11 inch hardbound book has the very interesting announcement from the publisher, that the Führer
himself had decided that the magazine Die Kunst im Dritten Reich
in the future would be published in a larger format.
So the July 1937 issue of Die Kunst im Dritten Reich
would be much larger (11 x 14 inch), and it would also be a special House of German Art edition.
Very rare and in very good condition.
