Very rare first illustrated edition of Conversazione in Sicilia by Elio Vittorini and Crocenzi

1st illustrated edition Bompiani 1953

This specific edition consists of 228 pp. with 188 photographs in the text. Original edition illustrated by photographs by Luigi Crocenzi and 7th in total of Elio Vittorini's masterpiece.
In 1950 Vittorini went to Sicily with Crocenzi, a young film operator and former collaborator of the Politecnico.
From the journey, which lasted 21 days, was born this sort of photographic story with the text of the novel demoted to mere commentary of the images.
This illustrated edition of the novel is based on the photographic stories of the Politecnico, that is to say, a sequence of photos with an autonomous narrative function.

    l'oggetto non è arrivato conforme in quanto il vetro era rotto (Non si è rotto con il trasporto, ammesso dallo stesso venditore) inoltre era sprovvisto di portalampade. Pessimo comportamento.

    E' stata offerta la restituzione di quanto pagato con la restituzione dell'oggetto, tra l'altro assicurato. L'oggetto non era rotto, ma aveva un buco interno non visibile all'esterno dovuto alle viti. Infatti l'acquirente ha deciso di tenerlo

    Tja, ik mag voor de prijs die ik betaald heb (vrijwel niets!) helemaal niet klagen, maar alles bij elkaar was het geen enkele aandacht waard, laat staan al die verzend-moeite met die hoeveelheid tape.
