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 #
