A signed and dedicated two-volume set of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” sold for triple its expected sale price at an auction house in Los Angeles.

The Nazi leader’s manifesto, considered one of the most racist and heinous screeds in modern history, sold Thursday for $64,850, including the buyer’s premium, after 11 bids.

Nate Sanders, owner of Nate D. Sanders Auctions in Los Angeles, had estimated that the books would sell for $20,000 to $25,000.

Sanders, who is Jewish, said Hitler gave the books to Josef Bauer, an early follower who participated in the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch in Munich.
