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.

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 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.

The crowning climax of Dante's immortal vision! The second and third part of Dante's Divine Comedy. Written in the fourteenth century by Italian poet and philosopher Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy is arguably the greatest epic poem of all time - presenting Dante’s brilliant vision of the three realms of Christian afterlife: Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise. In this second and perhaps most imaginative part of his masterwork, Dante struggles up the terraces of Mount Purgatory, still guided by Virgil, in a continuation of his difficult ascent to purity. In "Paradise", having plunged to the uttermost depths of Hell and climbed the Mount of Purgatory, Dante ascends to Heaven, continuing his soul's search for God, guided by his beloved Beatrice. As he progresses through the spheres of Paradise he grows in understanding, until he finally experiences divine love in the radiant presence of the deity. Examining eternal questions of faith, desire and enlightenment, Dante exercised all his learning and wit, wrath and tenderness in his creation of one of the greatest of all Christian allegories. Large volume weighing nearly 4 lbs. 328 pages. Oversize, insured post. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 018997

Item Description: Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, London: ., 1868. pp. xxiv, 183 + 76 Plates. Folio. 380 mm. Text block is broken at plate 40 and the plate there is loose. The deluxe binding was a handsomely tooled full leather, but it is now in need of restoration. The boards and spine are worn (with some loss) and detached. Hardbound. Durante degli Alighieri, simply called Dante (ca. 1265-1321), was a major Italian poet of the Late Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, is widely considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature. The Divine Comedy describes Dante's journey through Hell (Inferno), Purgatory (Purgatorio), and Paradise (Paradiso); he is first guided by the Roman poet Virgil and then by Beatrice, the subject of his love (and of another of his works, La Vita Nuova). The work her - the Vision of Hell (the Inferno), is usually most vivid for modern readers. An it is through the work of the great French Illustrator Gustave Dor‚ (1832-1883) that this work gain renewed luster in the 19th century and beyond. Priced to allow for some binding restoration.

The Vision of Purgatory and Paradise Translated from the Original of Italian poet and philosopher Dante Alighieri by Henry Francis Cary and Illustrated by Gustave Doré with Critical and Explanatory Notes. Near very good, antiquarian example of this classic work. The crowning climax of Dante's immortal vision! The second and third part of Dante's Divine Comedy. Written in the fourteenth century by Italian poet and philosopher Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy is arguably the greatest epic poem of all time - presenting here Dante’s brilliant vision of the Purgatory and Paradise realms of Christian afterlife. Dante 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. In this second and perhaps most imaginative part of his masterwork, Dante struggles up the terraces of Mount Purgatory, still guided by Virgil, in a continuation of his difficult ascent to purity. In "Paradise", having plunged to the uttermost depths of Hell and climbed the Mount of Purgatory, Dante ascends to Heaven, continuing his soul's search for God, guided by his beloved Beatrice. As he progresses through the spheres of Paradise he grows in understanding, until he finally experiences divine love in the radiant presence of the deity. Examining eternal questions of faith, desire and enlightenment, Dante exercised all his learning and wit, wrath and tenderness in his creation of one of the greatest of all Christian allegories. Large 7" x 9 1/4" design. 455 pages and 16 pages of Selections from Cassell & Company Publications. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" Tall. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 019157
