The Divine Comedy
Boston - Fields, Osgood and Co. 1870 - The complete three volumes of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. Translated from the original Italian into English by famous poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This translation took Longfellow several years and he invited friends to weekly meetings to aid him with the perfect translation. Dante's Divine Comedy is a long narrative poem completed in 1320. It is considered to be the preeminent work of Italian Literature and seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise (or Heaven). Allegorically it represents the soul's journey to God. Condition: In half morocco binding with cloth covered boards. Externally, smart with small patches of minor rubbing to the joints and to extremities. Small patches of rubbing to the raised bands. Long gift inscriptions to the recto of front endpapers to all volumes. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with the odd spots throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
