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: Fisher Unwin, 1892. First English edition. 12mo. White cloth lettered and decorated in blue. Page edges and endpapers in the same blue and white design as the boards. A near fine copy, light fading to the spine. Contemporary gift inscription on the verso free endpaper, dated "xmas 1891". Illustrated in line by C. Mazzanti. Originally published serially, "La storia di un burattino" (The story of a puppet) was published over several months of 1881 in the Giornale per i Bambini, a very popular Italian children's magazine. In the last of these pieces the subversive Pinocchio is hanged and dies, Collodi clearly tiring of his character and with no intent of resurrecting him. However, just as Conan Doyle was to do with Sherlock Holmes, public demand caused Collodi to continue the very popular story, so in 1882 he published piecemeal "Le avventure di Pinocchio". These two separate serialisations were published together in book form in Florence in 1883 with illustrations by Enrico Mazzanti, and then in English as part of the Children's Library Series in 1892. This edition is now uncommon and due to its notoriously fragile construction, particularly rare in nice condition. Bookseller Inventory # 23838

Half-title and title printed in red and black, frontispiece and illustrations throughout by C. Mazzanti. First edition in English. The London and New York editions are from the same sheets and both dated 1892, although the inscription here suggests that the London edition at least was issued the previous year, presumably for the Christmas gift market. First issued in magazine instalments in the Giornale dei bambini (Rome, 7 July 1881 on), Pinocchio was first published in book form in 1883 as Le Avventure di Pinocchio: storia di un burattino, and quickly became a best-seller, though Collodi (real name Carlo Lorenzini) died in 1890 before witnessing 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 # 44582
