'"Look how thou walkest. Take good heed, thy soles do tread not on the heads of thy poor brethren"', c1890. Dante and the Roman poet Virgil walk on a frozen lake, where sinners guilty of treachery are trapped in the ice. Illustration from "The Vision of Hell" (Inferno), the first part of "The Divine Comedy" (La divina commedia) by Dante Alighieri. This long, narrative poem, written in Italian c1308-1321, tracing Dante's imaginary journey from Hell, through Purgatory and finally to Heaven and a beatific vision of God, has been published numerous times. This edition, published late 19th century, is illustrated by Gustave Dore. [Cassell Petter & Galpin, c1890]
