145 by 210 mm. Small broadside manifesto, in Italian, issued by Caresse Crosby for her world citizenship movement. Crosby, an American, was the co-founder of expatriate Black Sun Press in Paris and spent much of her adult life in Europe. In 1948, she published a long Manifesto for Individual Secession into World Community, advocating a pacifist and world government cause. In the early 1950s, Crosby purchased land in Delphi, Greece, with the goal of establishing a World Citizen Center to be the capital of her one-world organization. The Greek government took offense at this attempt (however unlikely to succeed) by a foreigner to usurp their sovereignty and put Crosby under house arrest and subsequently expelled her. See The Cramoisy Queen: A Life of Caresse Crosby by Linda Hamalian (pp. 166ff). OCLC locates three copies. At one time, quite uncommon, until two dozen copies surfaced at Serendipity Books (Berkeley), in 2011. Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 141681
