A WOODBLOCK FROM THE ASHENDENE PRESS FEATURING A SCENE FROM PARADISO, CANTO XIII., Alighieri, Dante (1265-1321).
2 Alighieri, Dante (1265-1321). A WOODBLOCK FROM THE ASHENDENE PRESS FEATURING A SCENE FROM PARADISO, CANTO XIII.
London: The Ashendene Press, 1905. 
The Ashendene Press issued a three-volume Commedia between 1902 and 1905, and this woodblock was used in that edition of Paradiso. Printed in an edition of just 170 copies (50 on paper and 20 on vellum) with woodcut illustrations after the original woodcuts of the 1497 edition. The Ashendene Press, which set all of its editions by hand, issued 40 books in the years from 1895-1915 and 1920-1935. It's 1909 folio-sized edition of Dante (Tutte L'Opere) is generally considered one of the 'triple crown' of fine press printing along with the Doves Press Bible and the Kelmscott Chaucer.

DI GIORNO IN GIORNO [FROM DAY TO DAY]., Alighieri, Dante.
3 Alighieri, Dante. DI GIORNO IN GIORNO [FROM DAY TO DAY].
Firenze: Presso Bernardo Seeber, 1896. Second edition Good 
Oblong hardcover, 7" x 5". Imitation vellum boards, toned with age, soiled, and heavily rubbed and bumped at the corners. Illuminated initial "D" in Dante and calligraphic title in red and black with a gold cloth spine. Gold rubbed off of cloth covering spine at joints. Toning to endpapers. Three owner inscriptions on endpapers and a preliminary blank page. Still, this is a nice example of a daybook, likely published for tourists visiting Italy. Each page features one day of the month, and each day features one quote from the works of Dante in Italian, French, German, and English from authors who have translated his work, such as Longfellow. The languages used in this book demonstrate the range of cultures who were familiar with the Commedia, the cornerstone of Italian literature, and who wanted to remember it with a Dante souvenir.

12 Wharton, Richard, Esq. M.P. FABLES: CONSISTING OF SELECT PARTS FROM DANTE, BERNI, CHAUCER, AND ARIOSTO. IMITATED IN ENGLISH HEROIC VERSE.
London: Printed by T. Bensley . . . for Payne and Mackinlay, 1804. 
8vo. 199 pp. Inscribed by the author's wife, "Given to Mr. J.W. Phipps by Mrs. Wharton, March 13, 1812." In navy blue embossed leather with gilt decorative devices and gilt letters on spine. A.e.g. Joints and corners heavily rubbed. Corners lightly bumped. Else very good. Though Henry Francis Cary was the first to translate the entire Divine Comedy into English, several English authors translated various cantos of the work into their native tongue prior to him. According to ESTC, the first such partial translation of Dante's poetry into English appeared in 1773. Wharton's 1804 translation of cantos 3 (the description of the entrance to Hell), 32 and 33 (the story of Ugolino, a traitor at the lowest depth of Hell) into English Heroic Verse is one several early appearances of Dante in English. The three cantos translated in this work are among the best known scenes in Inferno. Fables renders select parts of Dante's well-known terze rime in English Heroic verse, imitating the style of English poet, dramatist, and critic, John Dryden. This book, offering selections from several major literary works, is an interesting example of the skimmed milk that was served up to the eighteenth century reader as an example of Dante's poetry. It is best appreciated when compared with the later, complete, and (arguably) more competent translations such as Cary's and Longfellow's. Scarce. ABPC locates no copy offered at auction in the past 30 years. OCLC locates but copies.

INSCRIPTIONS FROM DANTE'S DIVINA COMMEDIA IN THE STREETS OF FLORENCE., [ALIGHIERI, DANTE [1265-1321]]. Riedisser, Ida.
15 [ALIGHIERI, DANTE [1265-1321]]. Riedisser, Ida. INSCRIPTIONS FROM DANTE'S DIVINA COMMEDIA IN THE STREETS OF FLORENCE.
Milan: Alfieri & Lacroix, 1913. About very good. 
12mo. iv, 88pp. Age-toned, cardstock covers meant to resemble vellum with title and a color coat of arms on front cover. Yapp edges, which originally had ties to close the book. Ties missing. Dampstain to bottom of endpapers. Some soiling on top of pages 2 and 3. All 21 tipped-in color coats of arms are present. The city of Florence put up inscriptions from Dante's Commedia to mark all the places mentioned and all the sites where stood the houses of the families in the epic. The author arranges the inscriptions in the book chronologically, rather than topographically, and in doing so gives a concise history of Florence up to the time of Dante. An interesting revelation of what remains of the city of Florence as Dante knew it.
