Closeout Price! Recommended. By Dante Alighieri. Art by Gustave Doré. Dante’s masterpiece of literature is well matched by the peerless art of Gustave Doré. Dante and his guides, Virgil and Beatrice, journey through Hell in an allegory of the passage of the soul through the Afterlife. The illustrations were drawn or painted by Doré, then engraved in either steel or wood. They have rarely been out of print since their first publication in the 1860s. His artwork perfectly complements the movement from the darkness and horror of tormented souls in Hell, through to the light—Paradise Regained. Nicely reproduced. Handsome gilt and silver embossed hardcover.
