Eresia – di Oggi e di Domani. Nos. 1-9 (Aprile 1928 - Marzo 1929)

Bronx, New York: [Enrico Arrigoni], 1928-29. First Edition. Eresia was founded in 1928 by the Italian-American bricklayer Enrico Arrigoni as a journal of individualist anarchism. Nine issues appeared before publication was suspended in March 1929; three more issues would be published in 1931-2. Only the first nine issues are included here. Arrigoni (1898-1988) was a Milanese anarchist, laborer, and social critic; after immigrating to the U.S. ca. 1925 he began contributing to Italian-American journals under the pseudonym "Frank Brand." Arrigoni remained active well into old age, publishing work as late as the 1980s. He was especially active in the movement to aid Cuban anarchists who were persecuted following the 1959 revolution. Eresia forms an important bridge between the Italian-American insurrectionary anarchist tradition of the early 20th century and post-WW2 libertarianism, and it is uncommon: OCLC notes two holdings in North America (Michigan & NYPL), a few others in Europe, of varying degrees of completeness. Nine consecutive issues (issued irregularly), bound into patterned paste-paper boards. Quarto; each issue 32pp; some illus. Binding chipped at corners; moderate wear and toning to contents, including an obtrusive, amateur scotch-tape repair to gutter of issue no. 9; still Good, solidly bound and complete, with no markings or loss. Text entirely in Italian.
