Archive of the Limited Edition of Dante's Inferno: Canto I/3 / Phillips, Tom., 1983

 Item
Identifier: CC-54518-989983
Scope and Contents Canto 1/3 Phillips comments: Like all great literature Dante's Comedy grows from the body of literature that precedes it. The illustrations here frequently emphasise the fact that Inferno is a book that contains books; books that it models itself upon (the Aeneid) and books that it transcends (the Tesoro of Ser Brunetto; cf. Canto XV/2). Virgil is here represented in the form in which Dante first knows him, his work, and in particular the Aeneid of which this is perhaps the first page of a sumptuous illuminated manuscript; hence the initial `A' for the opening of the epic, Arma virumque cano (Arms and the Man, I sing. . .). Dante would have seen such volumes in the mansions of his wealthy patrons: we do not however know how many books the peripatetic exile actually owned; books at that date are handwritten, huge, heavy and very expensive. It is doubtful that Dante owned a complete Bible even: he probably owned fewer than Chaucer's scholar with his 'twenty books clad in black and...

Archive of the Limited Edition of Dante's Inferno: Canto II/1 / Phillips, Tom., 1983

 Item
Identifier: CC-54519-989984
Scope and Contents Canto II/1 This companion-piece to Dante in his Study shows Virgil in a similar room. The positions of the figure and the book derive also from Signorelli, but more remotely. Since no authoritative image of Virgil exists he is pictured without features. As with Dante the hands are my own and drawn from life. He is poised over the book of his Works. It is open at the Sixth Book of the Aeneid, the principal source for the Inferno. A bookmark indicates the Fourth Eclogue in which Virgil (as it seemed to the mediaeval world) prophesied the Coming of Christ. The Eagle of the Empire signifies Virgil's allegiance to the other Rome (a separation much to Dante's political tastes). In the left hand corner a distorted star with seven points and inscribed with alchemical devices is falling from the framework of the picture. This refers to Virgil's role in the mediaeval thought as a Magus (his book was used as a work of divination in the manner of the I Ching), a reputation Dante is eager to...
