Book Condition: 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.
