Unusable endorsements

You won't be seeing this on the back cover of Julian the Apostate's writings anytime soon:
The book that contains the reflections of the Emperor Julian should be circulated in millions. What wonderful intelligence, what discernment, all the wisdom of antiquity! It's extraordinary.
-- Adolf Hitler.

... This reminds me of my local Barnes & Noble, whose inventory calls for it to carry 3 copies of Mein Kampf in paperback and one hardcover (suitable for a graduation gift?). I asked an employee about it one day while she was doing inventory, and she confirmed that the store's modeled for that. Surely one paperback would suffice?
