Sacco-Vanzetti: A Bibliography
Booklists for Adults

The following bibliography represents a very selective list of books relative to the Sacco and Vanzetti case of 1927. These books are all available for circulation from the Boston Public Library and its branches. These titles and many more are also available for study in the non-circulating reference collection of the Research Library. In addition to the circulating and research material on the case, the Department of Rare Books and Manuscripts holds the Felicani Sacco and Vanzetti Collection, the major source for materials, both printed and manuscript, on the lives and deaths of these two immigrant Italian workers and the case that became a landmark in the judicial history of Massachusetts and the United States.
