EXPLANATION OF SIGNS, &c.

References throughout are to the Oxford edition ( 1904) of the complete works of Dante.

In order to facilitate reference in the case of the prose works, references (indicated by I superior I or index-numbers) are given to the lines (numbered separately for each chapter) of the several treatises as printed in the Oxford Dante, as well as to Book and Chapter; thus Conv. i. 1 219 = Convivio, Bk. i, Ch. 12, l. 19; Mon. ii. 3102 = De Monarchia, Bk. ii, Ch. 3, l. 102; V.N. § 2576 = Vita Nuova, Sect. 25, l. 76; and so on. The index-numbers being disregarded, the references hold equally well for other editions of the several treatises.

Cross-references are indicated by printing the name referred to between square brackets and in black type, e.g. [Buemme]. Head-words between square brackets, e.g. [ Belluzzo], [ Altafronte], [ Pharos], [ Thestylis], are names of persons or places mentioned by Forese Donati and Giovanni del Virgilio in their poetical correspondence with Dante. A single square bracket after a head-word, e.g. Fedra], Imola], indicates that the person or place in question is alluded to only, not mentioned by name, in Dante's works. Index-numbers are employed for the purpose of distinguishing between several persons or places of the same name, e.g. Aceste1 ( Acestes), Aceste2 ( Acaste); Indo1 (Indian), Indo2 (Indus) ; Reno1 (Rhine), Reno2 (river of Italy); Sesto1 (Sestos), Sesto2 ( Sextus Pompeius), &c.
