Description
1880 Dante Alighieri Purgatory Paradise Hell Gustave DORE Illustrated 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!



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).



This fine folio edition of Dante’s Purgatory and Paradise published by Cassell is a rare English edition, translated by H.F. Cary, and 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!
