This is a beautiful example of the very rare 7-1/8 x 10 inch, 48 page linen bound hard cover book Bauerntum als Heger Deutschen Blutes (The Peasantry - Guardians of German Blood) illustrated by Wolfgang Willrich, with a foreword by Reichsbauernführer R. Walther Darré as published by Blut und Boden Verlag in Goslar in 1935.
Following the single page foreword by Darré there is a three page introduction of the subject of the peasantry in Germany as guardians of precious German blood, written by Willrich himself. The remaining pages consist of splendid, highly detailed Willrich pencil drawings of the men, women and children of the German peasantry in the mid 1930s. Without reading the introduction that Willrich wrote, there isn't the slightest doubt that he was greatly captivated by the Nazi interpretation of Nordic beauty, and that he was the perfect artist to render it.
Blut und Boden Verlag in Goslar was the perfect publisher for a book of this type, and it found a ready audience among Nazis and those sympathetic with the racial philosophy of the NSDAP.
The subjects of Willrich in this book bear little resemblance to the racially diverse population one would encounter among the peasantry of Germany today. The book is filled with drawings of strong-looking Aryan men, striking Aryan women and beautiful Caucasian children.
It was a fairly expensive book at the time it was published 75+ years ago and this one still has a price sticker inside the back cover from a book dealer in Munich showing that it cost RM3.60. This book is in splendid original condition with a single, relatively unimportant defect: the blank page inside the front cover was removed by a former owner probably because it originally had a Nazi sympathetic dedication. Every other page in the book is in excellent condition.
