Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece (a portrait of Dante by D.J. Sluyter) and two folding maps (including a steel engraving with a cross section of DE HEL). With table of contents.
¶ Hardback edition in blue linen binding ['prachtbandje'] with gilt decoration and "1-2" on the spine. Part 3 (Het Paradijs) in Kok's translation exists and was - according to the NCC - published in 1864, but it is missing here. Our copy has been restored by master bookbinder Hans Zegveld from Nijmegen. An original flyleaf with the inscription 'L. Wilkens / 3 July 1870 Driebergen' was preserved and loosely inserted.
