The Dante Catalog

The Dante Catalog is maintained separately from the Five College Online Library Catalog and is arranged by date of publication. An index to the subjects of the illustrations in the Divina commedia is in the process of being added to this Webpage. Within the Dante Catalog any notation set off by an asterisk indicates information about the work supplied by the donor of the collection Valentine Giamatti.

Comento di Christophoro Landino fiorentino sopra la Comedia di Danthe Alighieri poeta fiorentino
Illustrated by Sandro Botticelli & Baldino; commentary by Christophoro Landino
Published in Firenze by Nicholo di Lorenzo della Magna
372 numb. leaves ; 2 illus. in text ; 42 cm. (fol.)

Dated in colophon: xxx dagosto. *This edition, the first having the commentary of Landino is remarkable for the copper plate engravings by Baldino, supposedly after sketches of Botticelli. The 1st was printed at the bottom of the 1st pg. of canto I; the 2nd, when printed, interfered with the text to such an extent that the remaining 17 (to be found in a very few copies) were printed separately and pasted in the book at the beginning of each canto of the Inferno. It is said that this is the first book in which plates were printed in the text.* Blank spaces preceding the other cantos suggest that more than 19 illustrations were originally planned.

1516 (ca.)
Dante col sito et forma dell'Inferno
Published in Venice by Alessandro Paganini
292 p. (3 illus. on 5 p. of plates) ; 11 cm. (sm. 8o)

*Very rare illustrated edition, the first printed in the smallest pocket size & a typo-graphical marvel. The date is not present in the book but may be easily deduced: it belongs to the period before Paganini's move to Toscolano. In the dedication by Paganini to Giulio de' Medici the latter is styled Deacon of Santa Maria in Donico, which places it before Giulio's appointment to San Clemente in June 1517. More important, the edition of Petrarch's "De remediis" (dated 10 November 1515) is mentioned in the same preface as having just been completed; therefore this Dante may be dated early in 1516. The last three leaves contain a double-page & 3 full-page wood-cuts, all appearing here for the first time. The double-page cut is signed by the well known Venetian wood engraver I.A. (Giovan Andrea?). Copy from the collection of Baron Horace de Landau*.

Published in Venetia by Miser Bernadino stagnino da Trino de Monferra
[12], 440 numb. leaves (1 plate ; 97 illus. in text) ; 22 cm. (8o)

Dated in colophon: xxviii. marzo. "Recorrecti et con ogne diligentia novamente in littera cursiva impresse." In colophon: "... & ha posto molte cose in diversi luoghi che ha truovato mancare si in lo texto come nella giosa etiam noviter per altri excellenti huomini." *Reprint of the reprint of 1512, except that the woodcut of Adam and Eve is repeated on the first pg. of the Inferno* The left-hand border has only 1 figure instead of the 2 in the 1512 ed.; the vignette on the t.p. is smaller and different; the ground has been removed, the monk faces right and there are 3 bishop's mitres. Plate: Inf. I.
