GARATTI, Celso Maria. Italiani di Mussolini in A.O. 569 pp. Profusely illustrated. Large folio, bound in the publisher's decorated cloth. Bologna: L. Cappelli, 1937.
An immaculate copy of the trade edition of this classic Fascist photobook. There were also copies in an elaborate binding with a metal spine. The layout shows the surprising influence of the avant garde of the twenties and thirties, which is at variance with the subject matter, namely the brilliant conquest of poorly armed Africans by Mussolini's military might. Surely one of the most striking and rarest of photobooks.
Very rare, with OCLC recording just five copies in the US and one copy in Italy.
