Pictures and page images from La Vita Nuova (The New Life) by Dante Alighieri, translated by Gabriel Rossetti and illustrated by Evelyn Paul, with music by Alfred Mercer.
The book is undated, but it appears to have been produced some time between 1897 and 1920. Most booksellers say about 1910, so that is what I have used.
Gabriel Rossetti was a Pre-Raphaelite painter and a Romantic writer and poet.
The full text of this translation is online at The Rosetti Archive, although it isn’t exactly the same edition.
I have scanned some complete pages, some details, and also some borders.
Evelyn Paul died in 1945, less than 70 years ago, but this book was published jointly in the UK and the US, before 1923, and hence is out of copyright, so I have marked the images as public domain.
