Inventario privato. Prefazione di Giacomo Zanga. Disegni di Alberto Casarotti.
First edition of the second published collection of poems by Elio Pagliarani (b. 1927), a member of the neo-avant-garde Gruppo 63. Pagliarani was the first of five poets to be anthologised by Alfredo Giuliani two years later in his important anthology I novissimi (1961), which in many ways can be seen as the launch of the Italian neo-avant-garde.
LUNACHARKSII, Anatolii Vaslievich.
Piat’ farsov dlia liubitelei [Five farces for amateurs].
Very rare first edition of five early plays, written for amateur performance, but rarely staged: ‘Sverkhchelovek’ (Superman), ‘Esche skvernyi anekdot’ (Another nasty anecdote), ‘Beglyi politik’ (The fugitive politician), ‘Bomba’ (Bomb), and ‘Obshchestvo maloi skorosti’ (Low-speed society). Lunacharsky was a voluminous playwright, though only a small portion of his output reached print.
