Identifier: CC-28365-29560
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.

Dante Inferno Typescript: Cantos XX-XXXI (Translation I) / Tom Phillips, translator ; Erskine-Tulloch P., 1981

 Item
Identifier: CC-28360-29555
Scope and Contents This volume of typed translations has more alterations and additions than the first typescript of cantos. On ten pages, Phillips has written "retype" in a decorative script and included a small ink cartoon-like drawing of a human or angel at a typewriter. The human image is a caricature of Pella Erskine-Tulloch. One cartoon bubble with this caricature reads, "Say Mr Dante I think your comedy is simply divine!" Another states, "A canto a day wipes the blues away." This Phillipsian humor referring to a great, poetic work of translation, can be found not only in the Inferno, but in many of his visual and literary works including his book dedicated to Rushdie, "Merely Connect," and in several pages of "A Humument," and in his introduction to "The Portrait Works" from the National Portrait Gallery.The binding by Pella Erskine-Tulloch repeats the theme of volume I with fleurs-di-lis and a portrait of Dante in his study, with the latter now presented in a coral color on both covers. --...
