In this paper we establish new L1L^1-type estimates for the classical Riesz potentials of order α(0,N)\alpha \in (0, N):

IαuLN/(Nα)(RN)CRuL1(RN;RN).\|I_\alpha u\|_{L^{N/(N-\alpha)}(\mathbb{R}^N)} \leq C\,\|Ru\|_{L^1(\mathbb{R}^N;\mathbb{R}^N)}.

This sharpens the result of Stein and Weiss on the mapping properties of Riesz potentials on the real Hardy space H1(RN)\mathcal{H}^1(\mathbb{R}^N) and provides a new family of L1L^1-Sobolev inequalities for the Riesz fractional gradient.
