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

Item 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.

Item 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
