Scope and Contents

The binding and typing of this first volume of the final typescript translation (with handwritten ink corrections by Phillips) was done by Pella Erskine-Tulloch although her usual gold stamped name is missing from the inside back cover. The Roman numerals from I to XXXIII are stamped on each of the three volumes within a hexagon, pointing downward with the initials TP stamped at the bottom. The numbers from I to X are in gold leaf signifying the contents of the volume. The hexagon outline is stamped Dante Inferno repetitively in very small type. The spine of each volume contains the title Inferno in black stencilled letters over which Dante Inferno is repetitively stamped in gold. The top edges of the three volumes are gilded and stamped with multiple fleurs-de-lis. The endpapers are printed with "Una Selva" stencilled text. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
