RARE AND IMPORTANT. THE FIRST EDITION OF THE COMPLETE WORKS OF DANTE AND THE GREATEST ILLUSTRATED DANTE EVER CONCEIVED. Zatta’s Dante, a supreme production of the press and one of the great Italian illustrated books of the 18th century, also represents the first complete offering of Dante’s work. It is considered the most perfect and complete of Dante ever printed. And generally speaking, it is considered the most beautiful edition of Dante ever produced. Most copies were bound in period vellum and have suffered significantly. This copy, bound in rare period calf over boards has survived in a fine state of preservation. "Dante’s theme, the greatest yet attempted in poetry, was to explain and justify the Christian cosmos through the allegory of a pilgrimage. To him comes Virgil, the symbol of philosophy, to guide him through the two lower realms of the next world, which are divided according to the classifications of the ‘Ethics’ of Aristotle. Hell is seen as an inverted cone with its point where lies Lucifer fixed in ice at the centre of the world, and the pilgrimage from it a climb to the foot of and then up the Purgatorial Mountain. Along the way Dante passes Popes, Kings and Emperors, poets, warriors and citizens of Florence, expiating the sins of their life on earth. On the summit is the Earthly Paradise where Beatrice meets them and Virgil departs. Dante is now led through the various spheres of heaven, and the poem ends with a vision of the Deity. The audacity of his theme, the success of its treatment, the beauty and majesty of his verse, have ensured that his poem never lost its reputation. The picture of divine justice is entirely unclouded by Dante’s own political prejudices, and his language never falls short of what he describes." PMM. Bookseller Inventory # 23600

Book Description: Ulrico Hoepli, Milano, 1878. Hardcover. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. A Little Inlaid Bibliopegic Jewel, OfferingRemarkable Technique, Charm, and Condition. 54 x 32 mm (2 1/8 x 1 1/4"). 4 p.l., 499, [1] pp. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. SUPERB CONTEMPORARY TAN MOROCCO INTRICATELY INLAID IN THE "FLORE ORNAMENTALE" STYLE BY MARIUS MICHEL (stamp-signed on front doublure), covers and spine with black inlaid morocco frames outlined in gilt enclosing a pattern of interlocking vines, leaves, and irises, all outlined in gilt and accented with gilt circlets, RED MOROCCO DOUBLURES with French fillet borders, all edges gilt. Contained in a custom-made (very probably original) velvet-lined case of dark brown morocco, the upper cover and sides adorned with gilt lozenges and flowers. With engraved frontispiece portrait of the author. The type cast by Giacomo Gnocchi of Milan, set by Giuseppe Geche, printed by Luigi Baldan, and corrected by Luigi Busato. Bondy, p. 95; Spielman 114. A SPLENDID COPY OF AN EXCEPTIONALLY CHARMING ITEM, with virtually no signs of use even to the case. This is a little bibliopegic gem, at once one of the most renowned miniature books ever produced and a striking inlaid miniature binding by one of the great French workshops of the Belle Epoque. Spielman thought the type (known as "flies' eyes" and measuring about two-point) was "the smallest ever employed." Whether that claim remains true, the Grolier Club's "Miniature Books: 4,000 Years of Tiny Treasures" reported that working with this type, which is scarcely visible to the naked eye, "is said to have injured the eyesight of both the compositor and corrector. It took one month to print 30 pages, and new types were necessary for every new forme." The amazing technical achievement of the printing is echoed here by the binding, in which we see a beautiful demonstration of the then-revolutionary "Flore Ornamentale" design. The elder Marius Michel had produced distinguished work in the prevailing historical style for two decades, beginning in Paris in 1849. He was joined in the business by his son Henri (also known as "Marius Michel"), who believed passionately "that bookbinding needed a new vocabulary of ornamentation in order to express the mood and spirit of contemporary authors." He found in the 1878 International Exposition a convenient and appropriate forum through which to promote the revolutionary style of decorative ornaments based on nature, a style he called "La Flore Ornamentale." He was at first viewed as impudent and rebellious, and his work was objected to on theoretical grounds as being too much like "art," and too little like a product of the binder's craft. But "the young man's fervent convictions, as well as his superb technical skills, as both a binder and a gilder, won him an increasing number of supporters. By 1885 his designs were seen as a viable alternative to traditional bindings for certain books." Other binders began to imitate his approach, but Marius Michel the Younger was the "undisputed leader of the new movement, [his] incomparable technique, harmonious selection of color, and infinite variety of plant motifs [placing] his work above those of his contemporaries." (Duncan & De Bartha) The design and finishing of this binding set it far above what one usually finds on a miniature book, and its unsurpassable condition and irresistible charm make this a compellingly attractive item.

Book Description: Nel Regal Palazzo, Parma, 1796. Hardcover. The Bodoni Dante in Remarkably Fine Condition and in a Lovely New Binding. 318 x 235 mm (12 1/2 x 9 1/4"). Three volumes. Edited by Giovanni Jacopo Dionisi. The Large Quarto Edition (there was a folio edition published the same year). VERY FINE REPLICA BINDINGS OF DEEP BLUE STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, by Courtland Benson, raised bands, covers gilt with a wide frame of interlocking drawer handle tools accented with small flowers, inner floral roll frame with oblique tulip cornerpieces, raised bands, spine panels with elaborate gilt fleuron centerpiece, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Brooks 654; Koch I, 12. Except for faint pinpoint foxing on the title page of the second volume and trivial smudges here and there, AN ESPECIALLY FINE, FRESH COPY WITH VAST MARGINS, and in unworn, particularly attractive, and convincing retrospective bindings. This is an especially tall copy--with leaves measuring 305 x 230 mm.--of the quarto edition of Bodoni's Dante, considered by Brooks to be as beautiful as the folio version (which he described as "Bellissima"). The same elegant format and typeface are used, and the two editions differ only in pagination. The most celebrated European printer of his era, Giambatista Bodoni (1740-1813) worked for more than 20 years at the royal press in Parma before obtaining permission to set up his own private press in 1791. Brooks says, "He took his printing in all its branches very seriously, laboured incessantly to perfect his type, had a fine artistic sense, . . . and produced books not only of a very high standard, but also showing a remarkably distinct individuality. . . . The result of his labours is a long list of books which . . . reach a very high, many of them the highest, level of technical excellence." Editor Giovanni Jacopo Dionisi based the text of the present edition on the manuscript of Filippo Villani, who had been appointed as the Florentine public reader of the "Divine Comedy" in 1392. Neither version of the Bodoni Dante is common in the marketplace: ABPC records just five copies, both folio and quarto, at auction since 1975, and only one since 1988. Although the bindings are new, they are faithful to the period and executed with great skill and very considerable aesthetic success. The Large Quarto Edition (there was a folio edition published the same year). Bookseller Inventory # ST12438b

Book Description: Milano, Ulrico Hoepli, 1878 (Padova, f.lli Salmin)., 1878. (mm. 52x34), 1 c.b. + cc. 4 nn. + pp. 500, con un ritratto di Dante inciso in antip. Legatura coeva in pieno marocchino scuro, dorso a cinque scomparti con titoli in oro. Sguardie marmorizzate, tagli colorati in rosso. Lievissima abrasione al dorso, altrimenti molto ben conservato. Uno dei 1000 esemplari del celebre "Dantino" stampato a Padova, dai fratelli Salmin, per U.Hoepli. "Antonio Farina de Plaisance, qui fut parmi les plus habiles graveurs que l'Italie ait jamais eut, gravait en 1834 les poinçons de corps 2 sur 3 points d'un caractére microscopique, qui a été fondu seulement en 1850 pour le compte de Giacomo Gnocchi. Après des efforts inutiles pour l'utiliser, le caractère passa aux frères Salmin de Padoue, qui l'employère à imprimer en 1878 mille exemplaires du fameux Dantino, livre qui est généralement appelé Le Plus Petit Livre du Monde à cause plutot de la petitesse du caractère que des dimensions de la page" (Fumagalli, Lexicon, pag. 276).

Book Description: London Presso di R. Zotti 1819-1820, 1820. 3 volumes. The second of Zotti’s two rare Italian editions printed in England, revised and with expanded notes and commentary. With an engraved portrait frontispiece of Dante in volume one. 8vo, full contemporary dark calf, the boards with a rolled frame in blind, the spines gilt tooled flat bands creating compartments with either gilt lettering or central gilt tooled devices, fine marbled endpapers and blind stippled turn-ins and board edges. lii, 463; 455; 491 pp. A fine and beautiful set, internally as fresh, clean and solid as could be found, appearing nearly unused and beautifully preserved. The contemporary calf bindings very handsome and proper, also beautifully preserved, one hinge of volume three quite tender, easily repairable. RARE, OF ZOTTI’S TWO PRINTINGS OF DANTE THE TOTAL NUMBER LISTED IN LIBRARY HOLDINGS IS ONLY 43 COPIES, AND THIS EDITION BEING ONLY 23 OF THOSE. Of these listed, some are incomplete and most do not have the portrait of Dante. Zotti, an Italian printer living in London but publishing in Italian was an important figure in the importation of Italian literature into the English speaking world. It is in no way surprising that this, Zotti’s second edition of Dante, was printed the same year as the first complete modern English translation. Zotti’s Dante includes important notes and commentary, Zotti’s introduction, and a ‘Vita’ edited from that of Girolamo Tiraboschi. Bookseller Inventory # 25071

Book Description: Antonio Zatta e figli, Venice, 1784. Leather. Book Condition: Good. Octavo (16cm); 3 volumes, 396; 352; 392 pages. Engraved portrait medallion on title page of each volume. 100 engraved half-page vignettes after Pietro Antonio Novelli (1729-1804).

Internally quite clean and fresh, with better than average margins References: Leporace, "Il libro illustrato nel settecento a Venezia," #6; Volkmann, "Iconografia Dantesca," 123; Fiske Dante Collection, 12. One of the master printers who led the book arts into a remarkable flowering in 18th century Venice, Antonio Zatta first produced an illustrated edition of Dante in 1757, in quarto. A full generation later, with the firm renamed "Zatta and sons," the old master conceived the idea of producing illustrated pocket editions of the best Italian poets, the "Parnaso italiano," as he called it. First off the press in the new series was Petrarch, followed quickly by the Divine Comedy offered here. It is not a mere reprint of the 1757 edition. Rather, Zatta hired an artist (Novelli) and an engraver (Cristoforo Dall'Acqua) to produce 100 fresh illustrations based on the earlier edition, but reflecting the new Rococo fashions that had come to inform every aspect of Venetian craftsmanship in the intervening years. The result, according to Volkmann, was "a pretty, pocket-size Dante, in the smallest bulk, adorned with graceful prints. Everything is serene and elegant, executed in the most minute fashion, and full of pleasing effects. Even the damned in hell seem to be amusing themselves quite happily." Text edited by Andrea Rubbi, with vocabulary notes by G. A. Volpi. Bookseller Inventory # 5527
