“Book” (Germania) Monaco, La Capitale del Movimento National-Socialista (Item I-FAS 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is an Italian pamphlet the title of which translates to: Germania-Munich, the Capital of the Movement-National Socialism, explains in pictures the deep meaning of Munich to the Bewegung, or Movement, and the reasons that even the Italian Fascist movement should consider it a revered and very meaningful place. Just as Fascism started in the “March on Rome,” the real beginning of the Nazi movement started in earnest in the aftermath of the march on Munich on November 9, 1923. There are 21 wonderful color pictures that are far ahead of their time for color photography. The pictures are of the NSDAP, sacred monuments, and its new bold architecture and other fine pictures of old Munich, its stately buildings, its gaiety, recreations, etc. This is a real fine example of the comradeship of the brown NSDAP and the black shirts of Il Duce’s Italy.

Mussolini Cigar Band from Cuba (Item I-FAS 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a really great little item of Il Duce memorabilia. This is a cigar band from a special series of cigars produced by tobacco firms in Cuba that greatly admired both Mussolini and Hitler. The Cuban people in general in those 1930’s years were infatuated with the accomplishments of the Italian and German leaders. The description of actual Cuban cigars manufactured by the island companies can be seen on our pages about Cuban cigar bands depicting Hitler’s image. These would be Item AH 12-6 and Item AH 12-7. This Mussolini edition, we understand, is even more rare than the Hitler series. We have one only of these offered items and you may never see another, so we recommend that you consider this offering quickly so that you may get to own this small, but very important, Fascist-inspired piece of history.

 Hitler Youth Book on Italian Youth (Item I-FAS 1-3; YOUTH 2-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is an extremely rare book published in Germany under the auspices of the German Hitler Youth. There is a foreword by Reichleiter and Hitler Youth Leader Balder von Schirach. The name of the volume is "Gil Youth in Italy." It contains 96 pages with spectacular photos of this fascist organization of youth in training, ceremonies, sports, and military maneuvers. Hundreds of dramatic pictures with super photography. It's 11 x 8 inches in size and in nice condition, but spine is a little loose. A very seldom seen side of the Italian experience in the pre-WWII European preparedness against the beast of Bolshevism. Very rare!

Original Press Release of Fascist Black Shirts in Berlin (Item I-FAS 1-4)

DESCRIPTION:This is a great original photo 8 ¾ x 6 ½ of 100 Ballila officers marching past the Ehrenmal on the Unter den Linden in Berlin. They were the particular guests of the Reich's Youth Leadership group; their next stop-Nuremburg for the Parteitag Grossdeutschland. Nice original picture, but unfortunately bent and partially torn in half. It has been taped from the backside and still would look great in an album. Note the Hitler Youth Leader at the front of the column with the Fascist commander of the unit.

Italian Tapestry (Item I-FAS 1-5)

DESCRIPTION:This is a fantastic tapestry from an Italian war veterans’ organization based in Utica, NY. It is from before the war and is quite frayed from many years of use, but somehow it still retains a wonderful look of Italy’s past majesty and glory days. Were it in its original form-unfrayed-it would go for many times what we ask for it. The bullion work is truly superb. Any Romanophile who can identify with this great momento of Italian heritage would do well to add this as a centerpiece to a great Italian collection, regardless of condition.

Italian Fascist Dagger with Hanger (Item I-FAS 1-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the classic M.V.S.N. Model 1937 dress dagger with double chain hanger and the gold and black portepee like the Model 1932. The Model 1937 grip is unusual in that its features face the trailing edge rather than the more normal leading edge. The face of the belt snap has a large Roman eagle outlined in black paint over the letters “SPQR,” Senatus Populus Que Romanus, (For the Senate and the People of Rome). The “MVSN,” Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale, (Volunteer Militia for National Security) is more commonly called the “Black Shirts.” This dagger is in excellent plus condition. It was worn of course, but never abused. The blade is mint! The gold-plated scabbard tip is tarnished to a small degree; however, this does not detract from the overall beauty of this rare and historically important Fascist weapon. Length in scabbard is 14 inches. Very few of these ever show up.

Italian Waffen- Cap Set for Officers (Item I-FAS 1-7; SS 13-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is the cap set in pure silver manufactured in Germany and presented to the Italian Divisions (the 24th Waffen- Mountain troops and the 29th Waffen Grenadier Division der Italienische Nr. 1. The Italian troops fought for their homeland in combat action and fought with great courage and effectiveness and they were contrary to the present-day propaganda. They were authentic representatives of the legitimate Italian Fascist government. Legally, therefore, these volunteers had every right to resist what to them was a hostile invasion of Italy by the allied forces. It is fair to say also that the Italian men were highly motivated ideologically and held the allied plutocrat-capitalists in equal contempt with the barbarous communist partisans that terrorized the countryside with rape, pillage, and murder most foul. In the end all the idealistic motivation came to naught. The western powers turned loose their communist terrorist allies on the brave captured soldiers of the Italian and the result was mass murder of these young, Christian idealists. There were not many survivors. The Italian volunteers were good and decent soldiers and deserve to be remembered as such! The formation of these units came into reality after the capitulation of Italy on September 8, 1943 and the disarming of the Italian military forces in German-held territory. The need to construct a new and reliable force became apparent. Fully 800,000 Italian soldiers had been disarmed by the Germans with more than 250,000 of these interned. This was the logical place to start looking for recruits as there were still a good many fascist, pro-German men among the remnants of the defunct Italian army. Full scale recruiting got underway after -Sturmbannführer Otto Skorzeny's spectacular rescue of Mussolini on September 12, 1943. The true Italian fascists now had Il Duce once more to rally around. In the course of September 1943 some 15,000 Italian officers and men volunteered for service in the Waffen- and were sent to the German training grounds at Münsingen and here they were referred to as legionnaires of the armed militia. Later, in September 1945, Hitler and Mussolini worked out a plan for the formation of Italian militia units under the supervision of the Waffen-. The rest is combat history as these crusaders set out to shove the Bolsheviks and other red rats out of their sacred land. In conclusion it can be said that the 20,000 or so volunteers of the Italian Legion and the 29th Waffen Grenadier Division did their jobs well, whether fighting internal terrorists or greatly superior regular enemy forces. They proved themselves soldiers of exceptional motivation and quality. They were one of the few bright spots in the Italian contribution to the axis war effort. This shameful and barbaric end to which these brave soldiers came must forever be considered another black mark on the stained escutcheon of the allied victors. Cap sets such as these were made in Germany to be distributed to officers of the divisions, especially those who had distinguished themselves in the former battles while in the Italian Army. They were issued at Münsingen. The badges are in pure silver. The eagle holds the fasces symbol that has the German silver designation in the back of the ax blade. The skulls used were the standard planchet "RZM"-marked pieces used by German Waffen- forces right to the end only with the "800" designation stamped under jaw. Several of the smaller companies made these insignia and many of them were gathered up at the end of the war in Berlin and other manufacturing concerns. They are to be considered rare and historically significant.

 Photograph of Von Ribbontrop and Ciano (Item I-FAS 1-11)

DESCRIPTION: This original press release measures 8 X 6 ¼ inches. It has von Ribbontrop, the Chief of the Diplomatic Corps, with Count Ciano, Italian ambassador and Mussolini's brother-in-law as they travel to the Führer's headquarters in Berlin. This is a nice, clear, unpublished photo. Many of these photos are ones that were rejected for publication for one reason or another. This one possibly because of von Ribbontrop's scowl or the rakish cant of Ciano's cap???? Anyway, it's the fortunate collector who owns a one-of-a-kind, historically important keepsake.

It was worn, of course, but not abused. The blade (as they usually are) is about mint! This is a rare and historically important Fascist weapon of Italy’s days of Romanesque glory. Length in scabbard is 14 inches. Very few ever show up these days.

Italian Fascist General Dress Dagger which was The Only Dagger Ever Worn by Adolf Hitler
(Item I-FAS 1-12-a)

DESCRIPTION: This is the PNF and M.V.S.N. model 1937 Dress Dagger, a white grip example for general officers with the gold and black dress portepee and double chain hangers. The top of the chain has the SPQR that sits under the Imperial Roman Aquila or eagle. This was to honor the Caesar’s and the ancient Roman Empire. The letters SPQR stand for "The Senate and the People of Rome”. MVSN refers to the National Security Volunteer Militia of the Italian Fascist movement. In the center of the Grip is the Fasces which were an ancient Roman symbol carried by Lichtors in front of the magistrates in procession. It is represented by a bundle of rods featuring an axe indicating the power over life and death and also the unity of the Tribunals adherents.

On the 3rd of May, 1938, Adolf Hitler arrived in Rome for a State visit. It was a gala occasion and the Italian people turned out in hundreds of thousands to greet the German leader; he was the man of the hour! Even foreshadowing their Duce Benito Mussolini. The streets were decked out gaily as well as the buildings of antiquity. The famed Plaza Venezia was brightly illuminated by night for Mussolini’s introduction of Germany’s Fuhrer. In the streets swastika flags were everywhere flying alongside Italy’s tricolor banners. A great parade was held past the Coliseum. The Fuhrer visited other Italian cities such as Venice and Florence and was greeted by cheering crowds all along the way. It was a festive, meaningful occasion when the Teuton’s met the inheritors of Imperial Rome that had been brought back by the indomitable Benito Mussolini. This was not the Rome of Pubilus Quinctilius Varus that sought to conquer the Germanic tribes but lost 18,000 Legionnaires in 9 Ce at the hands of Arminius or Hermann in the Battle of the Teutoberger Forest. No, this Imperial Rome would be the staunch Allie of the new Befreier of the Germans, Adolf Hitler. The two leaders were always together in this official state visit. And pictures of the visitation are seen in our pictorial section. You will notice that both Mussolini and Hitler wear the Higher Leaders M.V.S.N. dress dagger, Hitler donned the weapon to please his host and this is the one and only time that the German Fuhrer Ever wore a dagger in his life.

With all the Political daggers manufactured in Germany. He never at any time wore one. He was a plain man who disdained the trappings of glory and militarism. He carried a gun during the Kampfzeit only. See our explanation on these Hitler pages entitled Hitler’s revolver. But he no longer carried it after his beloved niece Angela ‘Geli” Raubel committed suicide with it in Sept 1931, After that he sometimes carried a Walther 32 cal. Automatic in a holster but only at the front and only when his General Staff insisted on it. No official was allowed on the Eastern Front without an issued side arm but most of the time (almost all of the time) he managed to avoid it and pictures of him wearing it are truly rare but it seems he felt honored to wear something “Fascist” in his Italian visit. And he certainly would have looked strange wearing one of the Fascist Fez’s so the dagger was the natural choice. Actually, nothing looked so utterly Fascist as this M.V.S.N. weapon and nothing personified the Black Shirt Regime more and as obvious as this knife. So here Germania International offers a genuine fine example of this very rare relic.

The dagger is in fine condition but with some tarnishing on the metal parts of the grip. Whether this will clean up we don’t know but we do not feel it detracts from the overall artistic beauty of the piece. You can see an example of the regular officer’s black grip model listed about at 1-FAS 1-12. The two are virtually identical except for the white instead of black grips on the High Leader dagger. This makes all the difference in the world as only hundreds of the white knife grip models were issued while the black grip models were issued in the thousands.

Book Mussolini (Item I-FAS 1-13)

DESCRIPTION: Book is comprised of 159 pages on the greatest Roman of history (He said so, himself!). Before the tragic war it could really be said the Benito Mussolini’s Italy was without doubt a return to the glories of ancient Rome. He certainly made the trains run on time! Fascist Italy should have always remained a state prepared for all-out war, but should never have indulged in it, in fact. The uniforms, the art, the pageantry were grandiose and spectacular, but the modern Italian of Il Duce’s army would have been better at making pizza and letting the Germans do the fighting. I am one who admires Il Duce for his ideas and his more peaceful agendas, but his support was not at all like Hitler’s SS. Italy’s entry into the Second World War was probably one of the real determining factors for Europe’s losing the war. If Rommel could have been on the eastern front instead of pulling Italy’s chestnuts from the fire in Africa and the Balkans, Stalingrad would never have happened or at least would have had a far different outcome. Communism would have been crushed and the United States would most likely have never entered the war. The book traces the history of the rise of Italian Fascism from the “March on Rome” to Il Duce’s rise to dictatorial power. The book is written in German, Italian, English, and French. The pictures are clear and photography superior. This is a very rare edition seldom seen and very much sought after. Pricey, but great!

Extremely Rare Presentation Volume of Mussolini’s Visit to Munich (Item I-FAS 1-14; NSDAP 8-2, PERS 2-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is the magnificent leather-bound book that was presented to very highly placed dignitaries on the occasion of the visit of the Italian Duce to Hitler, Germany and Der Hauptstadt Bewegung, Munich (The Head City of the Movement). The program that appears at the start of the book would make any good Germanophile wish he had a time-machine trip to the past to see these grandiose festivities; especially at 3:00 in the first afternoon of the visit as the formations of the NSDAP march by the Führer and Il Dulce:
   First, the Motorized Police, then,
   the Hitler Youth
   the NSKK (Motor Corps)
   the Old Fighters of November 9, 1923
   the HJ NS School personnel
   the Standards of the Movement
   the elite SA group Feldherrenhalle
   the NSKK, again
   the NSFK Glider Corps
   the SS Group South
   the Junkeers of the Ordensburg Vogelsang
   the political leaders
   the SS Death’s Head Division
   the SS Standard Germania
   the SS Standard Deutschland
   the SS Standard Adolf Hitler
   the elite of the elite march by last as always to the magnificent sound of the Badenweiller Marsch. What a parade!. The book has about 50 doubled pages of parchment-style paper and about 22 pages of spectacular pictures of Bavarian scenery and then about 15 glossy pages depicting photos of the Munich area including pictures of NS buildings and Bewegung ceremonies dealing with November 9th commemorations and the eternal watch at the Königsplatz. Included importantly in the doubled parchment is important text dealing with this grand occasion and 21 great art prints in full color of Munich, decked out in gala decorations for this auspicious and important visit. The pomp, ceremony, and architectural décor put together for this historical event will never reach this zenith again in all probability. The color prints measures from 5 x 3 ½ inches to 5 x 4 ¼ inches with a few other similar sizes. They were done in 1937 by an abstract artist (Buchnew). The use of gilt or gold paint is predominant and gives the scenes a royal-looking countenance. The title page letters stand out in high relief in this golden hue and are so raised they could be read in Braille. There is a signature of an English lady, who acquired the book in Schönberg in Tannis, while she was there in 1946-1951. Other than that the volume is in super-excellent shape with the elegant red, leather binding beautiful to behold with the great Hitler-style eagle on its cover. The book measures 7 ½ x 8 3/4 inches and nearly 1 inch thick. There is slight scuffing at corners; repeat , slight. This is a historic treasure seldom seen.

Book Hitler in Italien; 126 Bilder (126 pictures) (Item I-FAS 1-15; AH 12-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is a Heinrich Hoffmann exclusive work. He was the personal photographer of the Führer Reichsbilderichterstatter. There is a foreword by Dr. Otto Dietrich (Reich’s Press Chief). Except for four pages of text that chronicle the monumental visit, the whole book is made up of absolutely great pictures: the greeting to the Führer and his entourage, the adoration of the Italian people, the review of troops by the Führer and Il Duce, ancient Roman architecture, the Coliseum, etc., make this a fabulous volume important to the study of the turbulent and glorious era. It comprises 96 pages and measures 7 ½ x 10 ½ inches. The pictures are clear and sharp. The condition is great. Inside the front cover is the stamped wordage (Nachlass Adolf Hitler which probably means that this book was in the property of the Reich Adolf Hitler schools.

Book on Italian War Art, Feldgrau Italienische Kunstler Stellen Aus (Item I-FAS 1-16)

DESCRIPTION: This book was published in 1942 in Munich in the 21st year of the fascist era. It is small with many pictures of Italian war-inspired art by many of Italy’s favorite artists of the period. Unlike the realism of German N.S. art, much of this is impressionistic, but there is an equal amount of realism as well. Paintings, bronzes, and marble sculptures fill the pages of this very important volume. Pictures of the valiant Italian forces and their German allies mix with scenes of bestial enemy forces graphically portrayed. Many of the pictures are ultra-dramatic and historically meaningful. The book measures 5 x 7 inches and is 3/4 inch thick. It is comprised of 277 pages. Three fourths of the book contains pictures. This is considered very rare and desirable and our price is quite fair considering its rarity. The condition of the pages is fine, but the spine is a bit loose and a little tattered.
