In the eight months since my Dante catalogue was inflicted on the general public, I have continued to acquire more Dante items. I have not listed them for sale yet, as I am unsure whether I’d like to save them for a future Dante catalogue or whether I should just list them on my website and sell them. (And, no, Dante is not the subject of Catalogue #2, which is in the works, but is still mostly in the acquisition phase.) What do you think? Would you like to see another Dante catalogue or do you think it’s better for me to add these other Dante books to the collection I’ve already offered for sale by listing them on my website?
Here’s a picture of one of my favorite Dante covers. It’s from one of the many and varied editions of Dante translated by Henry Francis Cary and illustrated by Gustave Dore. I just love decorative bindings.
See you in the stacks!
