Front cover detached and faded with corner and edge chips, spine mostly perished, back cover also has corner and top edge chips. Interior paper browning and corners and edges bit chipped, shaken and a bit fragile but all present. About 500 copies printed. Contains the poems in Italian, fascimiles of manuscripts of the poems, and "matter from an abortive bilingual edition printed in England, including commentary by Pound and his translations of some of the poems."
