Se si fa la Rivoluzione in Italia si morrà di fame?

New York: Libreria Rossa, N.d. [ca 1919?]. First Edition. 12mo (18cm). Staple-bound pamphlet; printed thick paper wrappers; 24pp. Slight aging; mild creasing to spine; Very Good. Text entirely in Italian.

Communist tract, issued shortly after the Russian revolution, calling for an immediate proletarian revolution in Italy, with socialization of industry and agriculture; closure of borders (to prevent the flight of the bourgeoisie); and the "management of the new society through a free arrangement of persons and competent groups" ("...persone e di gruppi competenti interessati all soluzione di ogni singolo problema tecnico e sociale"). The pseudonym "Emme" is unknown to us; nor is it certain from which "Libreria Rossa" this pamphlet originated – "libreria rossa" ("red bookshop") being a common enough appelation among Italian-American radical booksellers of all political stripes during this period. One copy only in OCLC; not seen in commerce; not in Periconi.
