1890 Gustave Doré Illustrated Dante Milton Paradise Lost Inferno Art Literature



“The most popular and successful French book illustrator of the mid-19th century!”



Famous French artist, Gustave Doré was most known for his incredible woodcut engravings. Doré's Romantic style of illustration, supremely imaginative and richly detailed, was ideally suited to literary subjects. Artists and art lovers will find in these pages’ supreme examples of the illustrator's art!

“When Cassell saw the Dore Bible, they personally approached Dore to do Milton” (Malan, Gustav Dore).



Dore established himself as a prolific 19th-century illustrated and artist and the demand for his work was escalating. Thus, this later undated edition is valuable and desirable much like many of the other titles Dore illustrated.

“Gustave Dore, it has always seemed to me, was a motion-picture art director born before his time.” (Harryhausen, Master of Imagination).



Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is one of the most important and long-lasting works for literature. This rare English edition, translated by H.F. Cary, is Cary’s most famous and important work. In 1814, Cary published his translation on his own, as publishers would not take on the risk. This particular undated edition is quite rare and is illustrated with plates of Gustave Dore!

Milton's Paradise lost; Illustrated by Gustave Doré
