About this Item

Translation by Lovett F. Edwards. 8vo. Light blue cloth with gilt lettering and dark blue pictorial spine stamping, pictorial dust jacket. xv, 589pp. Very good/good plus. Jacket quite edgeworn and rubbed, with small edge chips -- yet complete and fairly attractive nonetheless. A tight and nice first U.S. edition of the first-ever translation of this 1857 novel ("Confessions of an Italian") but not published in Italian until 1867 by the Italian writer and journalist (1831-61) -- often called the most important novel about the Italian Risorgimento. Rather uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 37865
