Milano: Mondadori, 1965. 8vo, 544pp. With 37 illustrations. Brown cloth. Printed dust-jacket, signs of wear, few closed tears. Very good. First edition of this selection, with English and Italian on facing pages. Presentation copy inscribed (in translation): “To dear Mario Diacono, to the poet and collaborator without equal. Giuseppe Ungaretti, Rome, 22nd October 1965”. The last hundred pages (a scholarly appendix) are in fact by Diacono, who has later inscribed it to someone else, presumably a Berkeley friend. Not in Bentley. Ungaretti is (along with Montale and Quasimodo) one of the three most famous Italian poets of the 20th century. His collaborator Mario Diacono, his former student and private secretary from 1960 to 1967 then spent 3 years in Berkeley. (Item Id: 101537)
