LOS ANGELES - Copies of Adolf Hitler's manifesto "Mein Kampf" signed by the German Nazi leader will go under the hammer on Thursday in Los Angeles, auction house Nate D. Sanders said.

The autographed copies of the two-volume work steeped in anti-Semitism are inscribed as Christmas gifts to Josef Bauer, an officer in the German SS during World War Two and a participant in Hitler's failed Munich coup in 1923.

Bidding in the online auction for the signed books starts at $20,000 and is expected to sell for around $25,000, the auctioneers said.
