Description:

First Edition. One of 105 copies only, on paper of a total edition of 111 (6 on vellum). Subiaco type on specially-made Batchelor handmade paper with the watermark of a bugle and arrow above the printer’s initials. Full-page frontispiece and woodcuts throughout by Charles M. Gere, cut by W. H. Hooper. Large red initials by Graily Hewitt; headings and shoulder-notes in red; printed in double column (except for the Prefaces and the Index). Folio, 41.1 x 28.6 cm., original W. H. Smith binding of reddish brown niger morocco backed oak boards with metal clasps, leather richly braided with interlacing blind rules, solid gilt dots at the intersections, and a continuous vertical band at the outer side, made up of blind-tooled small dots and leaves. Inner side of both covers also decorated with leather as the outer sides, but without rules and dots. Spine in six compartments by five blind ruled raised bands (with raised head and tail-caps), title gilt in upper compartment, imprint at tail. Signed (monogram) in blind on the leather at the inner side of the front cover. Douglas Cockerell managed the W. H. Smith & Son bindery from 1905 to 1914. He later stated that all of the bindings signed with the 'WHS' stamp during those years were specially designed by him. xvi + 396. A very attractive copy. With the bookplate of James Curle, noted contributor to the Society of Antiquities of Scotland. Tutte le Opere stands as Ashendene’s crowning achievement, and one of the two or three greatest books of the fine-press movement (along with the Kelmscott Chaucer and the Doves Bible). Its quality was immediately apparent to one reviewer for the Times Literary Supplement, who raved, "Not perhaps since Boccaccio made with his own hand a copy of the ‘Divina Comedia,’ as a present for Petrarch, has such a labour of love been lavished on the works of Dante as in the sumptuous edition. which has just been issued from the Ashendene Press. No other country, not even his own Italy, has laid a more splendid tribute at the feet of the Florentine poet." The Ashendene Press was among of the most distinguished of the private presses which arose at the turn of the century, inspired by William Morris’ efforts to revive the moribund art of printing. Founded by C. H. St. John Hornby, managing director for a large British book distributor, the press was a highly personal project that produced works of great elegance and painstaking craftsmanship. Even more care than usual was lavished on this fine edition of Dante. As Hornby wrote in his bibliography of Ashendene, " This book was by far the most ambitious effort of the Press and took three years to complete. It was the first book for which a professional compositor was employed for setting up the type." Hornby’s dedication paid off handsomely. Bookseller Inventory #
