Sobreitero de Cuandernos Americanos, 1967. 1st Edition. Soft cover. A finely preserved, inscribed  copy of anti-war paper by Risieri Frondizi, Argentian philosopher, anthropologist and one of that country's pre-eminent intellectuals.   Frondizi (1910 - 1983) spent his early career in academe at the Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, where he served from its founding in 1937 as its' director of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters through 1946, when he was dismissed when Juan Peron's came to power. In the late 1950s Frondizi became rector of the University of Buenos Aires. In 1958, his brother Arturo Frondizi became president of a civilian government but was overthrown in 1962 by a military coup that supported the return of Perón.   Another military coup in June 1966 led to the forcible clearing of facilities of the University of Buenos Aires - an event known as La Noche de los Bastones Largos ("The Night of the Long Batons") - and over 300 university professors, including Frondizi, were exiled.  This paper apparently was written on the heals of the assault on the academy and Frondizi's exile.  The pamphlet comes from the private library of architect Cesar Pelli (1926 - 2019) and his wife, landscape architect Diane Balmori (1932-2016), both Argentinian-born. Pelli studied at Tucuman in the 1940s when Frondizi was professor there.   The pamphlet is inscribed in intimate and affectionate parlance:  "Par Tato y Diana con un abrazo pacifista de Risieri".   Tato is a term for brother; the translation roughly is " with peaceful embrace".   The pamphlet was published by  Sobreitero de Cuandernos Americanos,  September - October de 1967.  It has brown, flecked paper covers, stapled spine, 27 pages.  Frondizi presented the paper at the conference Pacem in Terris II (the second international convocation after Pope John XXIII's 1963 conference) in Geneva, May 28-31, 1967.  Fine condition. Laid-in is a publication list and ordering instruction sheet for publisher Centro Editor de America Latina. . Fine. Item #011661
