这本书被认为是“三王冠”中最珍贵的一本。据1895年创办阿森登书坊的查尔斯·哈罗德·圣约翰·霍恩比说,“这本书是迄今为止书坊最雄心勃勃的努力,花了三年时间才完成”。

这本书采用木刻插图,用亚麻布包荷兰板装帧,书名印在书脊上的纸标签上。只有四个副本被记录采用了这样的装帧形式,这是假定为一个未被记录的副本。一种可能是其它同类型装帧副本未正常出售,另一种可能是由霍恩斯自己收藏的。

 

私家书坊“三王冠”(指凯尔姆斯格特书坊、多佛书坊和阿森登书坊)的概念来源于日本著名的目录学家、翻译家、作家庄司浅水(1903-1991)。庄司浅水是一位非虚构文学作家和目录学研究者,同时也是水野印刷博物馆的名誉馆长和京都外国语大学的讲师,被广泛认为拥有日本最令人印象深刻的西方精品出版社和珍本私人藏品之一。

 

One of the `Triple Crowns` of Fine Press Books: Dante`s Works, Published by the Ashendene Press

`Tutte le opere di Dante Alighieri Fiorentino nuovamente rivedute nel testo e diligentemente emendate dal reverendo dottore Edoardo Moore, ed ora stampate per la gentile cortesia dei distinti direttori della Stamperia dell’Università di Oxford`

Fiorentino, Dante Alighieri.

Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1909.A limited edition of 105 copies

1 v., complete. 40.7x28.8cm. 16, 396 p. Text in Italian.

US$125,000

 

This book is considered the rarest of the  `triple crown`. According to Charles Harold St John Hornby, who founded Ashendene Press in 1895, 'this volume was by far the most ambitious effort of the Press to date and took three years to complete'.

 

This copy is illustrated with wood-engravings and bound in linen-backed Holland blue boards, with the title printed on a paper label to spine. There are only four copies recorded with such a binding, and this is assumed to be an unrecorded copy. It is possible that other copies of this type were not available for general sale, as one of the other known copies was part of Hornby`s own collection.

 

The “Triple Crown” of the fine presses come from the collection of the famous Japanese bibliographer, translator, and author Shoji Sensui (1903-1991). A non-fiction writer and bibliographical researcher, as well as honorary curator of the Mizuno Printing Museum and a former lecturer at the Kyoto University of Foreign Studies, Shoji is widely considered to have had one of the most impressive private collections of Western fine press and rare books in Japan.
