The Comedy of Dante Alighieri (binding design)

Dante Gabriel Rossetti

General Description

Date: 1865

Scholarly Commentary


The drawings for this binding design that DGR made for his brother's translation are not known to survive. WMR had completed his translation much earlier, in the late 1850s, and began a translation of the Purgatorio at that time. He tried to get it published by Macmillan but was initially refused. Macmillan later accepted it and it was issued in 1865.
