1904 PINOCCHIO THE ADVENTURES OF A MARIONETTE Carlo Collodi Hardcover

Regular price $155.00

"Pinocchio The Adventures of a Marionette" by Carlo Collodi. This antique book was published by Gin & Company in 1904. The book's has pictorial boards and gilt titling on the spine. The binding is sound. The pages are deckled, with two of the pages showing either rips or tears.


"Pinocchio" was first published in 1883. It added the cautionary tale of a wooden puppet to Italy’s arsenal of children’s literature that sought to straighten out the lackadaisical ways of the lower and middle classes, so the country could achieve national pride and harmony.  DISNEY'S original 1940 film contains many overt references to smoking and drinking, and the new remake will leave out much of the questionable content. If you celebrate the freedom to read, this copy of Pinocchio as it was originally written, is a great addition to your library.
