Vincenzo Fraschetti; Illustrated by Carlo V. Testi
Italia Dall' A alla Z. Poesie di Vincenzo Fraschetti. Commento Grafico di C. V. Testi
Officine Dell'istituto Geografico De Agostini,, Novara, Italy, 1936. RARE. First and only edition of this children's alphabet book published specifically for Italian children living abroad, intended to indoctrinate them in the strength and glories of Mussolini's Fascist government. Very Good, foxing to blank paste downs, boards rubbed at edges. Foreword by Piero Parini, director for the Fascist flagship newspaper Il Popolo d'Italia and coordinator of Fascist organizations of the Italian diaspora. 88 pp. With striking modernist and cubist-inspired full-color illustrations every page by the poster artist C.V. Testi and poems by Vincenzo Fraschetti. RARE given the intended audience and the postwar drive to eliminate Fascist material, especially from librairies. Worldcat shows 3 institutional holdings, 2 in the US and 1 in Germany. Size: Small 4to [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Dale Steffey Books, MWABA [Bloomington, IN, U.S.A.]
