Earth Inferno.

ITALY: Roberto Migliussi and Stefano Landi, 2010. Second Edition Thus, Limited. Softcover. Large Quarto. 30pp. Original printed wrappers. Eleven large black and white illustrations (mostly full page) and numerous decorations by Spare throughout. Text in English. This, the second Italian-published edition, limited to 200 hand numbered copies. This copy signed by the publisher Italian artist and Spare enthusiast Roberto Migliussi on the limitation page. A nicely produced facsimile edition of "Earth Inferno," Spare's first published book which was originally published in an edition of only 265 copies in 1905. "Earth Inferno" was a truly remarkable first book, in it the young artist juxtaposed huge, sometimes sinister images with teasing lyrics to create a vivid image of the darkly magical philosophy which informed his world-view. It was little wonder that his work swiftly attracted the attention of the likes of Aleister Crowley, whose occult fraternity Spare briefly joined. The first Italian-published edition was released by Migliussi in a limited edition in 1999. Fine condition. Item #64294
