Do's and don'ts of translation

Isla Vista: Turkey Press, 1982. 8p., elegant letterpress with rubricated title page, 8x2x5.7 inches, about fine; FYI, colophon states "all [500] copies have been bound in cloth over light-weight boards" and there was signed lettered issue. Laid in is an immaculate publisher's promo leaf also rubricated, giving some background, as that the text was delivered at 6th Pound conference held at the University of Maine, and "was presented with a reading of cantos III, IX and X from a new version of Dante's Inferno on which the author is working"

Sample at-random do's: "Treat proper names with great deference. Whenever possible rhyme on them" (p.7).
