The two copies of "Mein Kampf" signed by Adolf Hitler are joined by a leather jacket that used to belong to Hitler's chief architect, Albert Speer, on the auction block in Los Angeles.

According to the auctioneer Nate D. Sanders Auctions, Adolf Hitler signed the fly-leaf on the rare Mein Kampf for copies for one of the first members of the Nazi party, Josef Bauer. The rare Mein Kamp editions have a minimum bid of $20,000 for the two volumes. Both "Mein Kampf" copies are bound in red cloth boards with gilt lettering.

Sanders said that Adolf Hitler probably gave the Mein Kampf copies to Bauer as Christmas gifts in 1925 and 1926. The inscriptions wish Bauer best wishes for the holiday season.

The auctioneer called the rare Mein Kampf copies "an ominously signed set of books that futilely warned the world of Hitler's intentions."

Hitler dated his autograph inscription 1925 in the first copy, and 1926 in the second.

Nate D. Sanders Auctions said the two-volume set, which includes a first edition and a second edition Mein Kampf will be sold online to the highest bidder on Thursday.

Adolf Hitler wrote "Mein Kampf" while he was in prison. Mein Kampf means "My Struggle" in English. Hitler's book blames Marxists and Jews for all of Germany's troubles at the time. Millions of copies were published and distributed after Hitler rose to power in 1933. As of 1936, the Nazi state gave a copy to all newlyweds as a gift.

Nate D. Sanders Auctions said The leather jacket of Hitler's chief architect Albert Speer which is also being auctioned, was possibly worn the Speer visited Hitler for the last time on April 23rd, 1945.
