[Opere.]Rome: Luigi Mongini, 1899-1902 Stock Code: 123720
Marx in ItalianFirst edition, a bound volume of 12 Italian translations of works by Marx, issued by Luigi Mongini in parts, each work separately paginated, but continuously signed.
"1899 would mark a further qualitative leap in the publication of Marx and Engels's texts in Italy, reaching a particular peak in the years between 1899 and 1902. This was the most important attempt thus far to provide socialism and Italian culture with the greater part of the works by Marx and Engels that were then available. The publication in instalments of Marx, Engels, and Lassalle's Works (later appearing as a collection), thanks to the collaboration of important ancient historian Ettore Ciccotti and socialist publisher Luigi Mongini, would doubtless represent 'Italian culture's only true and substantial approach to Marx until after the Second World War'" (Favilli, pp. 213-4).
