Title

Mussolini in zijn hemd [Mussolini in a Nightshirt]. Amsterdam: N.V. De Arbeiderspers, [1933].

Description

Anyone wondering why the collection would include a book printed in Dutch will want to consult the main entry for the first Italian publication, in New York, of Armando Borghi's Mussolini in camicia.

This is the Dutch translation of that work: shortly after arriving in America in the wake of Mussolini's repression of the press, Borghi in 1927 published Mussolini in camicia in Italian in the only safe place to do so at the time, New York.

This work became internationally popular, was translated into French and published in Paris (1932), in Amsterdam in Dutch (1933), and then translated into English from the French edition, not the Italian original, and published in London (1935).

The collection contains all these editions, as well as two post-World War II editions published in Italy, in 1947, when it was finally safe to do so, and in 1961, which attests to the continuing interest in the work.
