Rarissimo facsimile del manoscritto autografo [Hopkinson, vol. 2, p. 83], pubblicato in occasione del quarantesimo anno dalla morte di Verdi. Edizione in tiratura limitata (250 copie). ".è opportuno menzionare uno dei documenti più eccezionali di cui possa valersi lo studioso verdiano, il cosiddetto 'abbozzo' del Rigoletto, pubblicato in facsimile da Carlo Gatti nel 1941. Consiste di 56 pagine, di cui le prime due e l’ultima coperte da fitte annotazioni, singole frasi ed idee isolate, alcune delle quali saranno utilizzate nella stesura finale, altre no [ ] Ma il corpo centrale del documento presenta un abbozzo continuo dell’intera opera, annotato per lo più su uno o due pentagrammi con non più di due dozzine di battute cancellate [ ] Nessun altro abbozzo verdiano di simile ampiezza è mai stato riportato alla luce" [Le opere di Verdi, Volume 1 - J. Budden, pp. 528-529]. "Fino al 1941 si sapeva poco o nulla di come Verdi componesse le sue opere. Quell'anno, in occasione del quarantesimo anniversario della sua morte, fu pubblicata un'edizione anastatica degli abbozzi del Rigoletto, appartenenti alla collezione di manoscritti che lo stesso compositore custodiva nella sua casa di Sant'Agata. Fu il curatore della pubblicazione, Carlo Gatti, a rivelare che gran parte degli abbozzi verdiani, da Luisa Miller (1849) alla fine della sua carriera, erano conservati a Sant’Agata" [Verdi, l'altro canto di Otello - P. Gossett]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        12 MILLION BLACK VOICES: A FOLK HISTORY OF THE NEGRO IN THE UNITED STATES ; Edwin Rosskam, photo editor

      NY: The Viking Press, 1941. First edition. Evans, Walker. Small 4to., 152 pp., 147 photos in gravure. Aside from slight darkening to the pastedowns at the gutter, due to the glue used in binding, this is a fine copy. The dust jacket, from a photograph by Walker Evans, is lightly rubbed at the front foredge fold and lacking a tiny spot on the rear panel near the spine. In all, an exceptional copy. The photographs, selected by Edwin Rosskam, are by the FSA photographers, Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Russell Lee, Jack Delano, Dorothea Lange, et al. They show both urban and rural life in the North and South. The striking dustjacket is illustrated with the Walker Evans photograph "Flood Refugees, Alabama."
