1 [BOTTICELLI, SANDRO]. Alighieri, Dante / Giovanni Peterlongo. LA DIVINA COMMEDIA (LA DIA KOMEDIO) / VERSIONE CON TESTO A FRONTE E COMMENTO IN ESPERANTO DI GIOVANNI PETERLONGO'S ILLUSTRAZIONI PER "LA DIVINA COMMEDIA" DI SANDRO BOTTICELLI.
Milano: SEIE, 1963. Eidzione Speciale 
4to. 8 1/2" x 11". 709 pp. + errata sheet. Fine pictorial cream-colored cloth in fine transparent dustjacket. With original publisher's prospectus and in slipcase as issued. But for age-toning and one 4" closed tear at the bottom seam, slipcase is in very good condition. Side-by-side translation of Dante in Italian and Esperanto, a language created by L.L. Zamenhof in his book Unua Libro in 1887. Zamenhof hoped to create an easy to learn and politically neutral language that would serve as a universal second language to foster peace and international understanding.Esperanto has had continuous usage by a community, estimated at between 100,000 and 2 million speakers for over a century, and approximately one thousand native speakers. Although no country has adopted the language officially, Esperanto did get official recognition by UNESCO in 1954. A most unusual translation.
