This important work of Pecorini (b. Italy, 1881; d. Argentina, 1957) was first published by the Nicoletti Brothers in 1911 “for the Italians in the United States,” and reprinted in this edition - dated 1912 - by that same important early publishing…

The cover but not the title page of this edition indicates that it is the "nuovissima edizione" - the newest edition - but there is no date inside.My guess is that it dates to the 1930's (see the similar but dated 1949 edition, costing $2.25). The…

Fifth Edition. It seems likely that this Fifth, and the Seventh Edition, q.v., date from sometime in the 1920s, but there is no evidence in the book or otherwise to pin this down.Here, as with Pecorini's Grammatica enciclopedia, I adhere to G. Thomas…

"Seventh Edition."It would not be until an Eighth edition in 1933, q.v. - 24 years after the original 1909 publication -  that the reader would be reminded that despite the 1914 date that appears in every edition (the Fifth and Seventh before the…

See discussion, generally, of the 1914 edition of this work. And see the additional discussion in the description of what appears to be an identical 1963 edition (with, as here, "revised by F. Tudisco" on the cover but not the title page). Mr.…
