About this Item

Scarce, and refreshing version of the Commedia, with the verse on the verso side and facing, on the recto, an Italian paraphrase. This would seem a great idea to facilitate the reading enjoyment of the work by stripping away the copious footnotes that generally accompany the Commedia, whatever language used. Surely lost in this version to the modern reader, and this would apply almost equally to the nineteenth century Italian reader as well, is some of the biographical and historical esoterica, but gained is an ability to relish the verse, with a quick bumping up of one's literal comprehension without getting bogged down in minutiae. The full vellum of the three volumes is attractive but soiled, particularly on the spines, and with one blemish burn-like spot, smaller than dime-sized, on the Inferno volume. Vellum of all volumes a little bowed, as the norm with vellum. Red and black spine labels -- minor chipping to volume number labels. Some scattered light soiling within but mostly clean. All volumes are tight. Bookseller Inventory # 001921

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
