[Armstrong, Margaret and Helen Maitland Armstrong] Ad Astra; Being Selections from the Divine Comedy of Dante

New York: R. H. Russell and Co., 1902.

First edition thus. 4to, 9 x 12 inches, side and bottom edges uncut. Publisher's brown boards with cover illustrated paper label, beige cloth spine. A monumental achievement, with whole and part-page design elements and illustrations by both Margaret and Helen Maitland Armstrong (sisters) comprising 39 large and four small decorations. "Delicate and sympathetic, the designs in this volume amply sustain the high reputation of the talented artists who conceived it." ("The Book Buyer," Sept, 1901). A near fine copy with very minor wear to corners, foxing only to prelims; a book seldom found, much less in this condition.

Price: $350.00   Item #5120
