This is an auction for THE LITTLE WORLD OF DON CAMILLO by Giovanni Guareschi.

From Wikipedia:

"Don Camillo is a fictional Catholic priest and the main protagonist in Giovanni Guareschi's gentle tales of a Post War Italian town with the Catholic priest and a Communist mayor locked in rivalry. Don Camillo is the hot-headed priest of a small village in the Po river valley in northern Italy, in the early postwar period. He is constantly at odds with the communist mayor Peppone and is also on very close terms with the crucifix in his village church. Through the crucifix he hears the voice of Christ. Don Camillo is a big man, tall and strong with hard fists. What Peppone and Camillo have in common is an interest in the wellbeing of the village. They also appear to have been both guerrilla fighters during the war; and while Peppone will make public speeches about how "the reactionaries" ought to be shot, and Don Camillo will preach fire and brimstone against "godless Communists", they actually grudgingly admire each other. Many stories are satirical and take on the real world political divide between the Italian Roman Catholic Church and the Italian Communist Party, not to mention other worldly politics. Others are tragedies about schism, politically motivated murder, and personal vendettas in a small town where everyone knows everyone else, but not everyone necessarily likes everyone else very much..."
