About this Item: Venice in Aedib. Aldi. Accuratissime men. Aug MDII. (Venezia. Aldo Manuzio, 1502), 1502. The first Aldine printing of The Divine Comedy and the Aldine "pocket book" format and the first use of the anchor device. With the famous Aldine anchor device on the final leaf. 8vo; 160mm x 95mm, in a beautiful antique binding of full polished vellum, the spine decorated with gilt ruled raised bands separating the compartments, two of the compartments with lettering labels of dark maroon morocco gilt lettered, the covers with triple gilt fillet rules at the borders, marbled endleaves, red edges. [244] leaves, and with the f.82 blank present. A very handsome and desirable copy, very nicely bound. Internally crisp and and quite bright and clean throughout, four of the leaves a bit shorter than the others, but with the same edge colour and clearly part of the text-block for a great time, last leaf with small restoration to the upper outside corner. RARE AND IMPORTANT AND ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS IN LITERARY AND PRINTING HISTORY. The first Aldine printing of Dante's Divine Comedy; the first edition of Dante to appear in a more handy, portable format (all previous editions were folios); the first book to contain the famous Aldine device of the anchor and dolphin (though Renouard suggests that a portion of the edition was issued without the device). According to Brunet, this is a much sought-after edition, and copies are difficult to find in complete and desirable condition. This book for all intents and purposes inaugurated the beginning of literary publishing by Aldus by which books became available to the general publis. This then is a book of the greatest importance. Printed in characteristic Aldine cursive type, this is a well margined and finely impressed copy. It was Aldus who provided the first edition of Dante to appear in a more handy, portable format (all previous editions were folios); it was the first book to contain the famous Aldine device of the anchor and dolphin (though Renouard suggests that a portion of the edition was issued without the device). According to Brunet, this is a much sought-after edition, and copies are difficult to find in complete and desirable condition. Printed in characteristic Aldine cursive type, this is a well margined and finely impressed copy. "Dante’s theme, the greatest yet attempted in poetry, was to explain and justify the Christian cosmos through the allegory of a pilgrimage. To him comes Virgil, the symbol of philosophy, to guide him through the two lower realms of the next world, which are divided according to the classifications of the ‘Ethics’ of Aristotle. Hell is seen as an inverted cone with its point where lies Lucifer fixed in ice at the centre of the world, and the pilgrimage from it a climb to the foot of and then up the Purgatorial Mountain. Along the way Dante passes Popes, Kings and Emperors, poets, warriors and citizens of Florence, expiating the sins of their life on earth. On the summit is the Earthly Paradise where Beatrice meets them and Virgil departs. Dante is now led through the various spheres of heaven, and the poem ends with a vision of the Deity. The audacity of his theme, the success of its treatment, the beauty and majesty of his verse, have ensured that his poem never lost its reputation. The picture of divine justice is entirely unclouded by Dante’s own political prejudices, and his language never falls short of what he describes." PMM. Seller Inventory # 23547
