Digitized Dantes now in LUNA

2 12 2011

The digitized images of the three Dante incunable editions are now available in the Library’s image viewer, LUNA. They’re housed in the Rylands Medieval Collection section, and you can find instructions about how to use the software and access them here:

Once you’re on the Rylands Medieval Collection page, to find the three Dante editions, type ‘Dante’ in the search box at top right (circled on image below):

You’ll see a page of thumbnails and the three editions listed by place of publication in the left margin (highlighted below with the red rectangle). Just click on the edition you want to view and LUNA will load the thumbnails. Sometimes the thumbnails don’t load in page order, in which case you will have to order them using the ‘Sort’ tool (circled in yellow on the image below, just under the search box at top right).

Make sure the sort options are in the following order:

Once you have your thumbnails in order, you can click on them to open them and zoom in on the detail. Enjoy!
