The original title of Hitler's "Mein Kampf" was "My 4 1/2 Year Struggle Against Lies, Stupidity, and Cowardice. " The first part was written while he was incarcerated in Landsberg prison after the 1923 Beerhall Putsch. His publisher, Max Amann, later changed the title to Mein Kampf ( My Struggle) . The first volume was published on July 18, 1925. By 1939, the book had sold over 5 MILLION copies, making Hitler a millionaire. Up to 1945, the book had a total printing of just over 10,000,000 copies. His official salara was 60,000 marks per annum. In 1934 Hitler declared his income for 1933 as 1,232,355 Marks. The tax on 600,000 of this amount was never paid. Most of this came of royalties from his book. He also received a fraction of a cent for every postage stamp sold bearing his image.
