Order Nr. 20008

Prospectus for this folio edition of Dante with Bruce Roger's illustrations from Botticelli's original drawings. The folio was to be limited to 300 copies. The translation was done by Charles Eliot Norton.

The typography is by the notable American book designer Bruce Rogers (1870-1957), who "was appreciated in his lifetime. In addition to several honorary degrees, in 1948 he was awarded a gold medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters for distinction in the graphic arts. Over decades of accomplishment in which he designed approximately 500 books... Rogers literally defined the profession of book designing in the United States" (ANB).
