Dante’s Comedia

Any collection of Italian literature would be incomplete without an edition of Dante’s Comedia. Hoby purchased one that included an up-to-date commentary on the work by Alessandro Velutello, a scholar from Lucca whose commentary was completed in 1544.

Dante Alighieri, La Comedia (Venice: Alessandro Vellutello, 1544), title page. St John’s College, Cambridge, Gg.8.38. By permission of the Master and Fellows of St John’s College, Cambridge.
