The Paradiso of Dante Alghieri

£14.99

Product description


The Paradiso of Dante Alighieri is part of The Divine Comedy", a long narrative poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed in 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered the pre-eminent work of Italian literature, and one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife represents the 14th century/medieval world-view, and describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory to Paradise. At a deeper level, it represents, allegorically, the soul's journey towards God.

Our version of The Paradiso is in good condition, bound in blue leather with thin line impressed border to front & back, an embossed emblem of an owl on the front, and gilt titles, etc in decorated panel on the spine. The exteriors show slight signs of wear, mainly at top & bottom of the spines, but otherwise the bindings are firm with no loose pages. The top and side page edges are uncut. There is slight foxing on the title pages but otherwise the pages are clean and bright.

Unclear what edition this is, please check photos.
