Description

See the general entry for Il Martello for the years 1918-1943 (repeated in a few descriptions of individual issues) for the history of the founding and running by Carlo Tresca of this, perhaps the most famous and almost surely the most long-lived of the radical newspapers in Italian in the Italian American community.

Bound volume - the second of two - of 23 issues of the newspaper-magazine Il Martello, spanning the period from January 1918 (Volume 3, No. 1) to February 1919 (Volume 4, No. 3), with no post-February issues in the second, 1919 volume. This volume is largely duplicative -but in unfailing chronological order, unlike the other volume - of the first volume bound by Augusto Lentricchia and was a gift to me of Frank Lentricchia, novelist and Katherine Everett Gilbert Professor of Literature and Theater Studies at Duke University.

That a reader of a review like Il Martello would lovingly gather issues into a homemade binding, beginning only a year after the founding of Il Martello in 1917, is a measure of the affection that Tresca’s followers felt for him and everything he did. An immigrant from Morollo, south of Rome, Augusto Lentricchia settled in Utica in the first decade of the 20th century, where he worked for the New York Central Railroad, from which he was fired several times for trying to organize other railroad workers to radical causes. Lentricchia was also a poet who wrote about radical issues; one of his poems was published in Il Martello. His bound diaries containing his poetry were donated by Professor Frank Lentricchia to the Italian American Collection at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
