Renaissance Dante in Print

http://www.nd.edu/~italnet/dante/

This exhibition presents Renaissance editions of Dante's Divine Comedy from the Dante Collection at the University of Notre Dame, together with selected treasures from The Newberry Library.

The site combines solid information and anecdotes surrounding both Dante's huge oeuvre, as well as the many tales of the printing community centered in Italy and particularly in Venice during this period. Also gives an illustrated list of all the editions of Dante's work published during the Renaissance, including one by Aldus Manutius.

The images below are from Francesco Marcolini da Forli's edition printed in 1544 in Venice (top); and Giovanni Antonio Morando's 1554 edition, again printed in Venice.
