Milano: A. Mondadori, 1936. Complete set of the nine fascicoli, 10x7.5 inches, each sewn, each with original covers, fastened together flimsily into two volumes of hand-titled brown paper wrappers. The wraps are laid-lined stock, far better than kraft, but entirely inadequate to enclose this massive quantity of clay-coated text paper; one of the volumes has fallen apart and allowed loose terminal and preliminary leaves and edgewear. 720p. plus numerous unpaginated plates (most tinted) and maps (most in colors), totalling at least 800p. Find many photos taken from the air of terrain and towns; all photography is well-reproduced, most maps rather beautiful. Complete, no mangled leaves, but handleable with some difficulty.
Find close-ups of Italian servicemen, Ethiopian POWs, the latest military vehicles, camels, plat maps of military routes and engagements. No gore.
