Alongside the secondhand Lee Child thrillers and Can-lit classics at this weekend’s Trinity College book sale is a copy of Hitler’s heinous political manifesto, Mein Kampf, on sale for $150. The volunteers who sorted through the boxes of donated books say the book—from the 22nd edition, published in 1933—was hidden under a dust jacket for Die Heilige Schrift des Alten Bundes (“The Holy Scripture of the Old Testament”).  It was in mint condition, save a square cut-out on the first page where the name of its former owner may have been written. Even more unnerving: an article from a 1938 Austrian newspaper titled “Bismarck Und Hitler” was tucked inside, along with a bookmark embroidered with Hitler’s bust and signature. [National Post]
