Agostino Caracci, brother of the more famous artist Annibalee Caracci -- both worked on celebrated frescos of the Palazzo Farnese in Rome -- contributed to the ornamenting of the plates to Canto 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16, 17, 19, 20. Bound in nineteenth century vellum, with also Victorian Era marbled endpapers. Soilage scattered throughout, yet text remains attractive. Plates are also quite vivid and bright, with some soilage in their margins. Prior owner stamped an oval seal on the base margin of the plate, not touching the plate, and this impression while generally faded, also has shadow on facing page. Vellum has light soilage but remains healthy. Boards are flat -- no warping of vellum. Minor chip to title label and to place/year label, in neither case affecting gilt lettering.
