About this Item: Talfourd Press, London, 1983. No binding. Condition: Fine. Limited Edition. No. 90 of 100 copies (total edition approximately 185), Elephant Folio - over 15" to 23" tall, 432 pp., Signed by Artist. Tom Phillips (b. 1937), an Oxford graduate, is one of the most prominent artists working today and his work is represented in most major collections of modern art around the world. He was inspired to create his visually stunning verison of Dante when he found a "lavish, red, gilded edition of Dante's 'Inferno' illustrated by Gustave Dore". His vision for this version was "to make the book a container for the energy usually expended on large scale paintings. The artist thus tries to reveal the artist in the poet and the poet helps to uncover / release the poet in the artist". As the LA Times wrote when reviewing the trade edition, "there is no doubt that Tom Phillips has captured Dante for our time. His prodigious achievement is not so much illustration as it is visual commentary, a fidelity to Dante's spirit at the occasional expense of the literal action of the poem." Mr. Phillips spent seven years creating this livre d'artiste, published in an edition of "approximately" 185 copies, 100 of which were sold in sheets as a boxed set. For his illustration and providing a new translation of the "Inferno" Phillips received the Frances Williams Memorial Prize in 1983; he also made a TV version of the Inferno with Peter Greenaway which won them jointly as directors the Italia prize. (N.B., above info from Mr. Phillips' web site and Wiki.) ***DESCRIPTION: Presented as unbound sheets contained in two hand-made buckram boxes, with 139 hors-texte illustrations done in intaglio, lithograph and silkscreen, with each illustration individually initialed by the artist; made up of thirty-four cantos, the title pages and the colophon; each canto is on three sheets (12 pages), making a total of 108 sheets (432 pages) in the book; page size is 16.5" by 12.5" (approximate); printed on 100% rag, acid-free, mould-made Inveresk (Somerset) paper, made and tinted to the artist's own specification and incorporating his signature as a watermark, by Inverest Mills, near Wells, Somerset. The two boxes are each covered in buckram, Volume I in olive green, Volume II in black, both have a line-drawing of Dante on the front and lettering on the spine, boxes lined with mauve decorated paper; box dimensions are 18" by 14" by 3" (approximate). ***CONDITION: Fine; each page clean, bright, and free of any marks or wear. The boxes have a slight amount of wear to the corners (professionally addressed to prevent further wear) and some light, stray soil marks, also a bit of wear to the inside paper lining. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that this set is extremely large and heavy, therefore additional postage may apply; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

The first part of Dante's Divine Comedy (translated by Henry Francis Cary), 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. Includes opening piece: "Life of Dante". Weighs over 5 lbs. 183 pages. Oversize, insured post. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Book. Seller Inventory # 019134
