This book is one of the most sought after original Third Reich publications on the Reichsautobahn! Published when Dr. Fritz Todt, head of the Reichsautobahn project, celebrated his 50th birthday on September 4, 1941. Also in: Gerry Badger & Martin Parr, The photobook a history, volume 3, page 24.

Condition: The book condition is overall good but the spine needs restored. Hardcover soiled and some stains. See last picture or the details. Further, tittle page and page 17 are missing. Despite this, it still remains a high valuable and ultra rare WW2 propaganda book for collectors. For that reason the reserve price will be lower compared to a fine edition.
