Title

Errico Malatesta. New York: Casa ed. "Il Martello", [1922].

Description

Nettlau (b. Neuwaldegg [Vienna], 1865; d. Amsterdam, 1944) was a German anarchist - indeed, according to Paul Avrich, Nettlau was the foremost historian of anarchism - who met Malatesta in London, and remained friends for the rest of their lives. Realizing that the history of anarchists would be lost as the first generation began to pass away, he planned on interviewing them and writing their biographies.

This 304-page biography of Malatesta, composed more than two decades after the earlier Nettlau work in the collection, is comprised of 20 chapters documenting the most important events in Malatesta’s life. The publication date of 1922 is a surmise arising from the fact that 1922 is the latest date of an event in Malatesta's life in the work, appearing at end of the chronological essay in Chapter XX.

The cover of this work contains a kind of subtitle not found on the title page, "materialismo e libertà." 

The interesting bibliographical fact about this work is that there was issued, apparently in the same year, and clearly by the same publisher, a lengthier and in other respects slightly different edition, which is also in the collection, q.v.
