Ma Madre Lizzie [Because I Was Flesh]
Torino: Einaudi, 1966. Near Fine/Near Fine. First Italian edition of Dahlberg's autobiography Because I Was Flesh. Translated by Rodolfo Wilcock. Foxing on top edge else about fine in slightly spine-toned, near fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Dahlberg to his seventh and final wife, the Irishwoman Julia Lawlor: "For my lovely, round Celt, her very clear smile. Much love, Edward. Dec. 25, '66. Unholy Christmas. The Blessed Way of the Merchant and his Avarice. 64 Rivington St. N.Y.C." This title was dedicated to his sixth wife, Rhlene (the printed dedication, in Italian reads "A mia moglie Rlene," in the original edition it is rendered: "For my wife Rlene"). Dahlberg married his seventh wife, Judith Lawlor in 1968, but at the time of this publication Dahlberg was reportedly living with both Rlene and Judith, mostly in Dublin. From the library of Dahlberg's close friend Coburn H. Britton, the owner of the Horizon Press, and founder of Prose magazine. Dahlberg and Britton were extremely close, with Britton considering Dahlberg his second "Father," and Dahlberg referring to Britton as his professed "Son." Britton was the dedicatee of Dahlberg's book The Gold of Ophir: Travels, Myths and Legends of the New World. (1972). A significant, if slightly confusing association copy.
