Light yellowing on outside page edges.The Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia is a poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world view as it had developed in the Western Church by the 14th century. It is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise or Heaven, but at a deeper level, it represents, allegorically, the soul's journey towards God.

Some stains and fingerprints but overall a clean edition. Book appears to have had some professional restoration with new tissue guard between frontis of author and title page. Title page illustration was precisely cut and glued to a new page. Some of the page edges show a professional repair.Ariosto's great cantos inspired by the crusades are considered his crowning achievement. First published in 1516, this edition was published after author's death, who died in 1533. The Orlando blocks were cut for this quarto edition and follow Niccolo Zoppino's idea of providing one illustration to each canto but going far beyond the Zoppino blocks in skill and cutting. These are the first full page illustrations for Ariosto. Valgrisi's artist often varied from Giolito'sin his choice of the principal scene for illustration and relegated the Giolito subjects to his background. Valgrisi's blocks are printed within borders with figures and grotesques. There are two different border designs for the illustrations and two smaller cherub borders for the heading(argomento) to each canto. End of cantos followed by annotations, also dated 1556 and table of principle aspects of the cantos.

Giovanni Giacomo Rossi and his successor from 1693, Domenico Rossi, then issued a new, changed edition of the work. Bartoli's etchings were aimed at detail, accurate accuracy and formal, aesthetic reproduction. The place of storage and, in some cases, the bearer of the relief are mentioned, although without indication of size and material. The reliefs are treated primarily as iconographic evidence of the history and culture of Rome.

Signed by author on title page without inscription. Second edition. Signed sticker on front of dust jacket. DJ has scratch in top right corner. Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon has transported readers to wonderful places: to New York City during the Golden Age of comic books (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay); to an imaginary Jewish homeland in Sitka, Alaska (The Yiddish Policemen's Union); to discover The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Now he takes us to Telegraph Avenue in a big-hearted and exhilarating novel that explores the profoundly intertwined lives of two Oakland, California families, one black and one white. In Telegraph Avenue, Chabon lovingly creates a world grounded in pop culture, Kung Fu, 70s Blaxploitation films, vinyl LPs, jazz and soul music and delivers a bravura epic of friendship, race, and secret histories.- See more at: http://www.hillcountrybooks.com/?page=shop/flypage&product_id=3230#sthash.y5MhXQ2O.dpuf
