IONIAN ISLANDS ITALIAN OCCUPATION, 1941 LETTERPRESS OVERPRINTS, by Piero Penco, in Italian: CEFALONIA E ITACA, OCCUPAZIONE MILITARE ITALIANA —reprint of Penco’s research with detailed synopsis in English by Dr. Migliavacca, plus two articles by Guglielmo Oliva, one on the ATHENS FORGERIES published in 1942, and the other on the quantities of these issues destroyed in Rome in July 1942. Both articles have an abstract in English. All this first hand information has never been available before to the English-speaking collectors. Much valuable information, many illustrations and enlargements of the overprints have been added to Penco’s work. 28 pages, incl. 2 maps. Quite rare, limited edition for the specialist and bibliopole.- Seminal work very useful, and required reading for the specialist. While the quality of the printing is good, the original printing was typical of the 1950s-1960s. On the whole this is a good readable and clear print with reasonably good pictures. If you expect perfect printing do not buy this item. On the other hand, if you are not a perfectionist, then the information is valuable, and this booklet is very useful.

THIS IS A MUST HAVE bibliophile publication.
