1861 The Poetical Works of John Milton
What Our Customers Say...
This presentation copy of John Milton's poetical works includes a memoir of the poet by Scotsman James Montgomery, as well as a verbal index to the poems, and explanatory notes by Henry G. Bohn. Alongside Milton's lesser known sonnets and odes, the two illustrated volumes contain his celebrated epics, Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained. With a sticker to the pastedown of both volumes depicting a crest, with the motto 'Non Sibi Sed Cunctis', meaning 'not for oneself, but for all'.
In a full red leather binding. Externally, generally smart. Lightly rubbed to the fore edge of the boards, more so to the joints. A little worn to the head and tail of the spines, with a few closed tears in the calf to the head of volume I. The front hinge is starting, but firm to both volumes. Pages are bright and clean throughout.
