Frontispiece plate of serpent fleeing from angels. Patterned endpapers, some toning. Gilt page edges at all sides. Bind good. Contains sixty classic engravings by the famed artist Gustave Dore. 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. Seller Inventory # 019157

Stated New Edition. N.D., circa 1885. Folio, gift book design; 10" x 13.5". Dante's Purgatory and Paradise Translated from the Original of Dante Alighieri by Henry Francis Cary and Illustrated with the Designs of Gustave Doré.

Bind solid, straight; hinges intact. Solid example. 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. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Over 5 lbs. 396 pages. Oversize, insured post. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Book. Seller Inventory # 019012

Dante's Inferno Translated from the Original of Dante Alighieri by Henry Francis Cary and Illustrated by Gustave Doré. Ornately decorated cover and spine embossed in gilt and black on brown b.g.; dramatically portrays scene of winged Lucifer in repose. Frontispiece portrait of Dante Alighieri w/tissue.

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".

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. Weighs 5 lbs. 183 pages. Oversize, insured post. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Book.
