A Hurried Man.Paris: Contact Editions,  Stock Code: 147823
First edition, first impression, of the only work by Italian writer Emanuel Carnevali (1897-1942) to be published in his lifetime. This book is uncommonly found, especially in such good condition.
After moving to the United States in 1914 at the age of 16, Carnevali became friends with poets such as William Carlos Williams and Ezra Pound and his poems were published in the magazine Poetry, which was founded in 1912. Williams was dogged by ill health and returned to Italy in 1922, where he died twenty years later.
Octavo. Original orange wrappers with flaps, lettered in black, untrimmed.
A hint of sunning to spine, the binding otherwise sharp, light abrasion marks to first blank from a once-removed bookplate, else internally crisp; a near-fine copy.
