1 signed copy of 1 out of 7 lithographs created by Rauschenberg for this album (not included in this copy). Each print is mounted in a folder that corresponds to one of the 34 cantos. The artist and the author of the essay used John Ciardi's translation of the "Inferno". The original drawings were completed between 1959 and 1960. They entered MOMA's collection in 1963, where they remain.
