A book describing Mussolini and his early years as Fascist leader. Factual content is mixed with glorification of his personal traits. A curious chapter describes a visit to "Mr. Mussolini" by the actor Jackie Coogan, "the most famous child in the world." The author would become a literary leader of the Italian anti-semitic campaign. This copy has a complicated provenance.
