As a consequence of this visit, Kevin Ray, the head of special collections of Washington University's Olin Library, decided to devote an entire exhibit to Tom Phillips' work on the translation and illustration of Dante's Inferno...We extend our thanks to the lenders of the exhibition and to the museums and galleries that provided the permission and reproductions for this volume. The greatest debt, though, is to Ruth and Marvin Sackner for their constant generosity...
