Le terze rime di Dante



No. 20682

Dante’s Divine Comedy, first published in the 16th century. It is considered one of the best works of classical Italian literature as well as Christian literature, and differs from other books in that it is written in the Tuscan dialect rather than in Latin. Most books published in the 15th century were large books, but Aldo the publisher devised a small octavo size book to make it easier to carry around. He adopted italic type movable-types which he had begun to use from the previous year for the text.
