The revisions and additions compared to the 1916 edition are many: in addition to the changes to the 30 poems (compared to the 33 of the first) are added the 26 poems (also with variations) taken from ‘Allegria di naufragi’ of 1919, and some unpublished poems.
Slight traces of wear at the top and bottom edges of the spine, a little browning between the sheets.
