Book Description Thomas Y. Crowell, New York. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Very good half-leather hardback with edgewear and lightly faded marbled end papers. Decorative gilt and lettering on the leather spine is still bright at the binding is intact. No date is given for this book on the copyright page, but the date at the end of the preface is January, 1814 in which the translator appears to claim that the other complete editions of Dante in this country (America) have been in Italian. Whether or not this is the case, And 1814 seems late for an initial Dante translation in America, this edition should have merit as a study text for comparative translation purposes. Ships securely boxed with delivery confirmation on domestic orders. Bookseller Inventory # 1898
