The Comedy of Dante Alighieri Translated into English Unrhymed Hendecasyllabic Verse by Mary Prentice Lillie. [Volumes I, II, III, complete set]

San Francisco: The Grabhorn Press, 1957. Hardcover. An immaculate set, with prospectus and apology leaf in cloth slipcase with pull-ribbon; the slipcase is slightly toned around the mouth with a fleck of ink. Mould-made paperstock, heavy parchment over boards spine-titled gilt with cover device gilt. Looks like (more than usual) a labor of love. Limited to 300 sets, unnumbered. Prospectus contains information of a colophon sort, and the 3p. apology ("It is our sincere conviction that.." that you'll like this rather colloquial version) must make do for any critical apparatus; these two brochures are slightly edgeworn. The set is free of any ownership markings; the full Monty, in gleaming condition.
