Dante Alighieri; Rev. Henry Boyd, translator
The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri, Consisting of the Inferno - Purgatorio - and Paradiso.,
London: A. Strahan for T. Cadell, 1802. First English language edition. A lovely set of the first complete translation into English of Dante's "Divine Comedy." Full contemporary tree calf, spines expertly rebacked to style, morocco spine lables, gilt borders and spine panels. Three 8vo volumes (pages 216 x 132 mm), collating: vi, , 408; [iv], 56, [ii (divisional title)], 57-62, 65-384 (complete); [iv], 420pp., engraved frontispiece portrait plate of Dante by Thomas Stothard in vol.1, half-titles in volumes 2 and 3, complete (despite the funny numbering sequence in volume 2). A few pages lightly foxed (heaviest on the first title page), but on the whole an excellent set.
