1760 Paradise Regain'd. A Poem, in Four Books.
What Our Customers Say...
A smart Baskerville edition of Milton's poem, which was first published in 1761.
Baskerville was an innovative and pioneering type designer and printer. His typefaces were greatly admired by Benjamin Franklin. The Baskerville type is regarded as a transitional serif typeface intended as a refinement of the old-style typefaces of the period such as Calson.
Sharing similar theological themes to Milton's earlier 'Paradise Lost', the poem uses blank verse to deal with the temptation of Christ, as recounted in the Gospel of Luke.
ESTC reference number T194571. With leaves H1 and P7 cancels, as called for.
