Item Description: Talfourd Press, London, 1983. No binding. Book 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 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 initialled 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.

Item Description: Pollard & Moss, 47 John St.,, New York:, 1885. Folio. xxiv, 183, [1] pp. Woodcut-engraved frontisp., 70 woodcut-engraved plates. Mustard-coloured pictorial publisher's cloth over beveled boards, elaborate gilt & black illustrations on front cover & spine by Dore, gilt & black lettering, decorated endpapers, a.e.g. (slight rubbing head & foot of spine, very slight shelfwear), NF bright copy. Early Pollard & Moss edition of this beautifully illustrated edition, with the famed Dore engravings of the first of Dante's trilogy, which form the Divine Comedy. Dore decided in 1855 to create a series of engravings for a deluxe edition of Dante, but his French publisher Hachette would not finance the project, so the artist paid for it himself. When the French edition was published in 1861 it was wildly successful, and Hachette quickly urged him to continue the work. These illustrations are considered the artist's crowning achievement, and no one since has achieved the same cultural impact. Pollard & Moss was a short lived "pirate" house founded by Martha B. Pollard and Charles Moss in 1879. Initially it operated as a subscription book publishing business, and published unauthorized reprints of many different publisher's best-selling works including a set of Dickens, and a number of different Gustave Dore illustrated works. They were sued several times by Cassell and other printers to prevent them from publishing the Gustave Dore illustrated works, for which they were paying no royalties, either to publisher, or author, and after several losses in the courts, and other financial setbacks went out of business in 1890.

Each sin's punishment in the 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.
