About this Item: ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1502 edition. Language: ita. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set.

About this Item: (al verso del foglio:) Lo 'nferno e 'l purgatorio e 'l paradiso di Dante Alaghieri. (in fine:) Venetiis, in Aedibus Aldi. Accuratissime men. Aug. MDII. (Venezia, Aldo Manuzio, 1502.), 1502. Condition: molto buono. in-8 (154x100), ff. 224 (il f. 82 bianco presente, il verso dell'ultimo f. bianco), carattere corsivo aldino, bella legatura di fine Settecento in vitello marmorizzato, i piatti adorni da 3 bordure neoclassiche in oro, titolo su duplice tassello rosso e blu al dorso (piccoli difetti alle cerniere. Prima edizione aldina e prima delle edizioni di Dante impressa in formato tascabile. Prima tiratura, con il verso dell'ultimo f. bianco, in luogo dell'àncora che figura nella seconda tiratura. Come è noto, la nuova impresa tipografica aldina fu approntata in corso di edizione; pochissimi esemplari erano già stati finiti senza l'ancora, e sono di gran lunga più rari. La lezione curata da Pietro Bembo, servì di base a tutte le edizioni successive. La presente edizione è di insigne importanza filologica, assai rara ed ambita dai bibliofili. Esemplare marginoso in elegante legatura neoclassica, in genere fresco (pochi ff. presentano un alone di polvere), strappo restaurato all'angolo inf.esterno di 3 ff., che in un caso tocca il testo. UCLA 47 (first issue). Renouard, Annali, p. 34. 5. Gamba, testi di lingua, 385: ''molto raro''. Mambelli, Annali Danteschi 17: ''Assai rara gli esemplari completi'' De Batines, I, 60. Olschki Dantesca, 22: ''rarissima e graziosissima''. Seller Inventory # 0000000000965

(Venezia, Aldo Manuzio, 1502.), 1502. Condition: molto buono. in-8 (mm 157 x 95) , ff. 244 non numerati (il f. 82 bianco presente), carattere corsivo aldino, bella legatura inglese d'amatore di fine ottocento, non firmata, in marocchino blu scuro, i piatti adorni di riquadro con filetti e fregi floreali in oro, dorso a nervi con fregi e titoli oro, tagli dorati, dentelle int. Prima edizione aldina e prima delle edizioni di Dante impressa in formato tascabile. La lezione, curata da Pietro Bembo, servì di base a tutte le edizioni successive. La presente edizione è di insigne importanza filologica, assai rara ed ambita dai bibliofili: qui appare per la prima volta la celebre impresa tipografica di Aldo Manuzio dell' ancora con delfino al verso dell' ultimo foglio; la più celebre delle marche tipografiche della storia, che venne ultimata durante la stampa del volume. Bellissimo esemplare, abilmente rinfrescato all'epoca della rilegatura, con tre antiche provenienze nobiliari non ancora identificate, una con timbro e due manoscritte, sulla sguardia anteriore, sul primo e sul secondo foglio. In questo esemplare, di pregio particolare, ognuno dei 33 canti dell'Inferno ha nel margine bianco inferiore di una sua pagina una dotta nota manoscritta coeva di commento al canto stesso, vergata in chiaro minuto carattere, in una lingua italo-spagnuola, su tre o più righe, assai interessante. Inoltre tra i fogli i7 e i8 è inserito un foglio con numerazione 72 che contiene l'inizio del canto XXXII dell'Inferno, proveniente dall'edizione aldina del 1515 delle ''Terze Rime''. - Interessante per i rapporti di amicizia che il poeta canta nel sonetto LII "Guido, i' vorrei che tu e Lapo ed io".

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
