THE CHILDREN'S LIBRARY BOOK. Pinocchio, the name a variant of common "pinolo" (pine seed), is a fictional character and the protagonist of the children's novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883) by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. Carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a small Italian village near Florence, he was created as a wooden puppet but dreamed of becoming a real boy. He has also been used as a character who is prone to telling lies and fabricating stories for various reasons. The story has appeared in many adaptations in other media. Pinocchio has been called an icon of modern culture and one of the most re-imagined characters in the pantheon of children's literature. Carlo Lorenzini, better known by the pen name Carlo Collodi (Italian pronunciation: [¿karlo kol¿l¿¿di]; 24 November 1826 ¿ 26 October 1890), was a children's writer born in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and writer of the world-renowned fairy tale novel The Adventures of Pinocchio.

Item Description: London, T. Fisher Unwin, 1892, 1892. Small octavo. Original blue patterned cloth, titles to spine and upper panel in blue, patterned edges and endpapers. Spine faded and rolled, upper hinge cracking. First Edition in English. "One of the best known fantasies, and the most popular children's book to come out of Italy. The story was written for a Rome children's magazine, the Giornale dei bambini, where the first instalment appeared on 7 July 1881. It was published as a book in 1883 under the title Le Avventure di Pinocchio: Storia di un burattino (History of a Puppet), and quickly became a best-seller. Lorenzini's publisher is said to have made a fortune out of it, but Lorenzini himself died too early [in 1890] to witness its international success. Almost nothing else in children's literature equals Pinocchio for wildness of invention" (Carpenter & Prichard, Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). Bookseller Inventory # 41321

Item Description: 1892. Translated from the Italian by M[ary]. A[lice]. Murray. Illustrated by C.[sic] Mazzanti. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1892. Original cream cloth decorated in blue, with endpapers and page edges to match. First Edition in English, issued as a volume in Unwin's "The Children's Library." Lorenzini (1826-1890 -- he used his mother's native village in Tuscany as his pseudonym "Collodi") was a prolific journalist; he wrote "Storia di un Burattino" (The Story of a Marionette) for 1881-1883 serialization in "Il Giornale per i Bambini," at the end of which it first appeared in book form in Italian (Florence 1883 -- the only copy we have seen on the market was priced at $67,500). Although it would become one of the most widely read juvenile classics, Collodi received little for it; it was not translated into English until two years after his death, for this edition.~In Lorenzini's serial version, Pinocchio was not an endearing boy beset by temptation, but rather a nasty disgrace; PINOCCHIO, written as a warning to boys, did not end happily: as still occurs at the end of Chapter 15, due to his moral shortcomings Pinocchio is hanged from a tree by his enemies the Fox and the Cat. At the urging of his editors, for the Italian book version Lorenzini added Chapters 16-36, featuring "the fairy with blue hair" to rescue Pinocchio from the hanging, and to guide him toward his redemption (and a happy ending).~It is interesting to note the differences between this original version and the version we are most familiar with today, that of Disney's 1940 animated film: it was Disney who softened the character of Pinocchio from a wicked wretch into a charming ragamuffin. Disney retained the "talking cricket" of Lorenzini's book but named him Jiminy, and had Pinocchio swallowed by a whale rather than by a dog-fish.~Unwin's "The Children's Library" was a handsome production: a busy floral design decorates not only the front and rear covers and spine, but also the endpapers and the edges of the leaves. The half-title and title pages are printed in black and red, and the text pages are peppered with Enrico (the "C." on the title page is an error) Mazzanti's illustrations from the original serialization.~This is a very good-plus copy, with the two flaws this book almost always suffers from: the cream spine has some sunning and fading, and the rather thick little volume is slightly aslant. As for the front and rear covers, there is less of the cover soil and wear that typically afflict this rather delicate book intended to be handled by children. Bookseller Inventory # 13172

Item Description: Cassell Publishing Co, New York, 1892. Book Condition: Near Fine. First American edition. Published simultaneously with the British Unwin edition, using the same sheets, but with a canceled title page. Part of the Children's Library Series. Original blue floral-decorated white cloth, recased with a slight loss to the cloth at the base of the spine; internally in excellent condition. Presenting Near Fine overall. Only one other copy of this Cassell imprint is currently available (the VG+ Bradley Martin copy for $9500) and only one appears in the recent auction record, Christies 2005; the American issue is decidedly scarce.Originally appearing in an Italian children's magazine in 1881, "La Storia di un Burattino" was more than an amusing, yet dark, tale for Italian children. Written by the political activist, Carlo Collodi, the story of Pinocchio was meant to aide in the reunification of Italy after the Napoleonic Wars had splintered the Italian states and devastated any sense of national identity. With the struggle to rebuild the Italian nation at hand, Collodi, worked to translate and create educational children's literature to create a vision of unification for the people. His story of Pinocchio was quite unlike the sanitized Disney version that most children grew up watching. The original story depicts an unsympathetic "rogue" in the carpenter, Geppetto, who defied his father's wishes, eschewed education, and fell easily into temptation by the fox and the cat. And, spoiler alert, it ended with Pinocchio's death at the hand of his tempters, providing a warning to those children who were not obedient to their parents or striving towards good moral behavior. When the stories were compiled and published as a book in 1883, titled: "Le avventure di Pinocchio," they were given a more upbeat ending, where Pinocchio realizes his wrongdoings, corrects his behavior, and ultimately transforms into a real boy. Due to the story's success in Italy, Mary Alice Murray translated this first English edition of the story in 1892. "Almost nothing else in children's literature equals Pinocchio for wildness of invention" (Humphrey Carpenter & Mari Prichard: The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature). Near Fine.
