Item Description: A. Strahan for T. Cadell, London, 1802. First English language edition. A lovely set of the first complete translation into English of Dante's "Divine Comedy." Full contemporary polished calf by "J. Bohn" (not later than 1809). Boards ruled in gilt with a blindstamped mosaic border, raised bands with decorative gilt and titling on the spine, all edges marbled, with marbled end-papers. Spines a little faded and trivial flaking along the outer hinges, but a fantastic set in an unrestored and strictly contemporary binding. Three 8vo volumes (pages 228 x 140 mm), taller than many copies, collating: vi, [2], 408; [ii], 56, [ii (divisional title)], 57-62, 65-384 (complete); [ii], 420pp., engraved frontispiece portrait plate of Dante by Thomas Stothard in vol.1, bound without the half-titles in volumes 2 and 3, otherwise complete (despite the funky numbering sequence in volume 2). A few pages very slightly foxed, but on the whole a Fine set internally and with only trivial wear on the original bindings. One of the world's great masterpieces and a foundational text of Italian literature. The Comedy took over a decade for Dante to write, he worked on it in exile, having been sent out of his native Florence in 1302, when his political faction fell out of favor. The work's genius was quickly recognized -- Boccaccio himself was so obsessed with it that he was responsible for adding the prefix "Divine." Over the years, it has influenced countless writers, among them Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, and James Joyce. Borges claimed it was "the best book literature has achieved."Boyd (1748/49 - 1832), a member of the Irish clergy, was responsible for the first English translation of the Inferno in 1785 as well as the complete work in this 1802 edition. His translation would help bring Dante back into literary circles after he had fallen by the critical wayside in the aftermath of the Renaissance and Enlightenment. The "Divine Comedy" soon regained its popularity; before the 19th century was up Longfellow would also try his hand at a translation and William Blake would make drawings of some of its more famous passages.

Rossetti had published a translation in blank verse of the Inferno in 1865. Vernon Lushington (1832-1912) was a judge closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood of which William Michael Rossetti was a founder member. It was Lushington, a Cambridge Apostle, who first introduced Edward Burne-Jones to Dante Gabriel Rossetti in his college rooms. Lushington's daughter Kitty was supposedly the model for Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway.Early inscription on title-page. Cover rubbed at edges and joints. Hinges cracking but tight. Very good.

Item Description: Venice, Pietro da Fino, 1568. 4to. Contemporary full vellum binding with five raised bands, gilt title-label and single gilt lines to spine. Binding a bit soiled and with wear to corners, capitals, and raised bands. Inner hinges a bit weak. Woodcut printer's device to title-page, lovely woodcut initials throughout, large woodcut printer's device to verso of final leaf, and three full-page engravings depicting Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradise. A bit of light soiling and brownspotting, but overall a very nice and clean copy. Neat old owner's signature to title-page and one page with extensive early hand-written notes to lower margin. (12), 717, (1) pp. Scarce first edition thus, being the first (and until 1989 only) edition with the important and influential commentaries by Bernardino Daniello, one of the most important Dante-commentators of the Renaissance. The work is rare and very sought after both due to the excellent commentaries of Daniello and the beautifully executed printing of the work. Bernardino Daniello da Lucca (ca. 1500 - 1565) was a famous Renaissance-commentator, who contributed decisively to the reception of several important classic and Medieval texts. Not only do his Dante-commentaries constitute the best and most important of his own works, they are also considered among the most important Dante-commentaries of the Renaissance overall. It is not until recently that the full scope of Daniello's importance to the Dante-commentary-tradition has been understood, but with the new 1989-edition of the present work, the extent of his influence on the Dante-reception has properly come to light. "While there are a number of late 19th- and early 20th-century editions of Dante's Trecento and Quattrocento commentaries, the Renaissance commentaries have generally only been available in a few rare book collections. Until now, of the four major Renaissance commentators, only Castelvetro's 1579 work was available in a more recent edition." (Deborah Parker, "Bernardino Daniello and the Commentary Tradition", in: Dante Studies, No. 106, 1988).Even if Daniello's Dante-commentaries primarily relate those of his teacher, the highly esteemed Renaissance scholar Trifon Gabriele, there is no doubt as to the importance of these commentaries, be they plagiarized or not. Gabriele's commentaries and his Dante-teachings have never been published (and are only extant in manuscript-version), and his foundational thoughts on Dante are thus only available through the present edition of Dante, with Daniello's frequently repeated, quoted, and highly esteemed commentaries. "On recherche cette édition à cause du commentaire, qui est fort estimé. Il y manque pourtant les vers 105 à 118 du sixième chant du Purgatoire, omis par la faute de l'imprimeur." (Brunet II:504). "Le commentaire est aussi attribué à Gabriello Trifone." (Graesse II:930).Adams D:104, Brunet II:504, Graesse II:930. Bookseller Inventory # 45025

Item Description: William D. Ticknor (privately printed), Boston, 1843. JOHN NEAL'S COPY, with his lightly-penciled annotations, OF THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION OF ANY PART OF DANTE'S DIVINE COMEDY. 83 pp. + an engraved portrait frontispiece of Dante by David Claypool Johnston. The translator, Thomas William Parsons (1819-1892), was a leading Boston dentist (!), poet, and intellectual. A contemporary (and acquaintance) of Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Emerson, Thoreau, and James Russell Lowell, this is his first published work. Although he was only in his early 20s when he composed this translation, he demonstrates a highly-developed poetic sensibility and the work has considerable literary merit (and doubtless played a role in encouraging Parsons' friend Longfellow to translate the entire Comedy a few decades later). Still, Dante was relatively unknown in America during the early 19th century, and so very few copies of this privately-printed edition were issued. This is AN OUTSTANDING ASSOCIATION COPY, with a presentation inscription from Parsons to JOHN NEAL, ESQ. Neal (1793-1876) was an intellectual who traveled in the same literary circles as Parsons. He is considered the first American author to use slang in his writing, and was an early proponent of women's rights (and a lawyer, boxer, and architect as well). Neal read this book carefully, as attested by several brief, lightly-penciled marginal annotations. Published by William Davis Ticknor (1810-1864), who went on to found Ticknor and Fields. Printed on fine wove paper. Large 8vo. BOUND IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH-BACKED BOARDS, WITH THE ORIGINAL PAPER SPINE LABEL INTACT. Some wear to extremities of binding, but structurally solid. INTERNALLY FINE AND BRIGHT. Housed in a custom-made cloth folding case. Colomb de Batines I, 269 (not mentioning the frontispiece portrait present here); BAL 15518 (with note that this work is cited without being seen). A truly exceptional copy of an important and extremely rare book. Bookseller Inventory # 38433

Item Description: Ticknor and Fields, Boston, 1867. Cloth. Book Condition: Near Fine+. First Edition thus. First American translation "of the first complete, and in many respects still the best, English translation of The Divine Comedy." (Luzzi) With bibliographical and critical notes. The translation in each volume is preceded by two of Longfellow's sonnets on translating this epic poem. Royal octavo: vii,[5],414; vi,[4],410; vi,[4],452pp. Publisher's original green C cloth, beveled boards, spines and upper covers lettered in gilt, top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed, titles pages in red and black. Small book label of Frank Hudson on upper left corner of front paste down of each volume. An excellent wide-margined set, with only minor rubbing and wear to bindings, text block free of foxing and tightly bound. BAL 12146. Chamberlain, p. 73. Chew XXV. None of the auction records or bookseller descriptions we have seen distinguish among (or even acknowledges) the four first edition printings. Each volume of the translation was first printed in a private issue of 10 copies between 1865 and 1867. For the first published edition, the translation was revised and notes and an index were added. Between April 13 and September 27, 1867, four printings went through the presses. Our three volume set comprises a second (p. 223, note 116 reads: Vedrai gli antichi spiriti dolenti), a first (p. 350, note 32 reads: It will be noted that Dante / ), and an undetermined printing with first state of the copyright notice (the "H" in "Henry" is set beneath the first "c" in "according"). Longfellow spent several years translating the poem. To help perfect the translation and review proofs, he invited friends to weekly meetings every Wednesday, starting in 1864. The "Dante Club," as it was called, regularly included William Dean Howells, James Russell Lowell, and Charles Eliot Norton. Longfellow "succeeded in capturing the original brilliance of Dante's lines with a close, sometimes awkwardly literal translation that allows the Tuscan to shine through the English . . . Longfellow's English indeed comes across as Italianate: in surrendering to the letter and spirit of Dante's Tuscan, he loses the quirks and perks of his mother tongue." (Joseph Luzzi, "How to Read Dante in the 21st Century," The American Scholar, Web exclusive, March 22, 2016) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1359

The first part of Dante's Divine Comedy, the "Inferno" (or "Hell") begins on the night before Good Friday in the year 1300, "halfway along our life's path". Dante is thirty-five years old, half of the biblical life expectancy of 70, lost in a dark wood, assailed by beasts he cannot evade, and unable to find the straight way to salvation. Conscious that he is ruining himself and that he is falling into a deep place where the sun is silent, Dante is at last rescued by Virgil, and the two of them begin their journey to the underworld. Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice. Weighs 5 lbs. 183 pages. Oversize, insured post. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Book.
