1890 Dante Alighieri Divine Comedy Purgatory & Paradise Gustave DORE Illustrated

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”
― Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

A beautiful folio edition of Dante’s Purgatory and Paradise published by Cassell.

Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is one of the most important and long-lasting works for literature. This rare English edition, translated by H.F. Cary, is Cary’s most famous and important work. In 1814, Cary published his translation on his own, as publishers would not take on the risk. This particular undated edition is scarce, especially in this condition, and is illustrated with plates of Gustave Dore!
