Fratelli Fabbri editori, Città del Vaticano, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana. In folio, original case, 40 x 25 case; 295 pages with reproductions in colour of the illuminations of the codex.
Parchment with spine with three raised bands, gold title and threads on spine, gold trim on the plates. Facsimile reproduction on the occasion of the 7th centenary of the birth of the great poet, one of the most famous and charming of Dante's manuscripts.
Artistic elements and literary knowledge make of this illuminated manuscript for Federico da Montefeltro
(deposited in the Vatican Library, which inherited the library from the Montefeltros)
a priceless masterpiece, great tribute to the genius of Dante.
The illuminations (attributed to Giraldi - 1478) illustrate the individual cantos, small simple images that stand apart from the sumptuousness of the rich ornamentation of the title pages; great sophistication in the compositions of medallions, ovals and friezes with quotes related to classical culture, Montefeltro coat of arms within a colonnade (in the large miniature of the door of Heaven) a motif that had already appeared in the Bible of Borso D'este.
Copy no. 0396 of 1190 copies.

Il quadro purtroppo e' pervenuto senza vetro e la cornice rotta in uno spigolo per cattivo im-ballaggio Consegnata al corniciaio con un ulteriore spesa E.25,00.Buonasera,
mi spiace per la cornice danneggiata
Vorrei però sottolineare che il quadro era senza vetro già in origine, come evidenziato dalle foto dell'inserzione.
Noi non mettiamo il vetro sui dipinti ad olio, ne altera il colore e ne modifica la percezione nelle foto
Le auguriamo una buona serata
It took a while but everything good
