Mussolini, Benito  
The Cardinal's Mistress
 Picture
Publisher: Albert & Charles Boni, 1928 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Translated by Hiram Motherwell. "This novel is written with the fervid passion of a young Italian viewing life and love in the early years of maturity. It is a romantic tale of the licentious Renaissance, when moral standards were very different from now. Proud princes and lovely courtesans, noisy demagogues and sly conspirators, pass through the pages of the story, whose plot is spun amid the romantic setting of the Trentine Alps.The title is that given to the volume by the author himself. The narrative is richly colored and pulsating with the energy characteristic of the Duce. While the book is above all a daring and impassioned story of love and intrigue in Seventeenth Century Italy, many will find in it unconscious self-revelations of the man who is perhaps the most hotly debated figure in contemporary Europe. At the time of writing the author was but twenty-six years old and was an extreme free-thinker in regard to religion and morals." Written before World War I, when he was a journalist, Benito Mussolini became the Dictator of Italy in the 1920s and through World War II. 232 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 18.99 CAD 18.63 EUR 13.22 GBP 9.68 JPY 1,500.00 MXN 187.50 ZAR 166.67
