Paradise Lost

By Milton, John




Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 in ten books. A second edition followed in 1674, redivided into twelve books (in the manner of the division of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification. The poem concerns the Christian story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

Paradise Lost

Milton, John

First edition. This is a very rare example of Paradise Lost with the contemporary binding untouched and with a 1667 title page. This volume has been signed by women who owned it in the 17th and 18th centuries. Samuel Johnson wrote of Paradise Lost, "The characteristic quality of his poem is sublimity. He sometimes descends to the elegant; but his element is the great. He can occasionally invest himself with grace; but his natural port is gigantic loftiness. He can please when pleasure is required; but it is his particular power to astonish." Thomas B. Macaulay hailed Milton as "the poet, statesman, the philosopher, the glory of English literature, the champion and martyr of English liberty." Milton, who went blind in middle age in 1652, did not write Paradise Lost by hand. Instead, he dictated it to family and friends who served as his amanuenses. Each morning before rising from bed, Milton was read to from the Hebrew Bible, and later in the day he would dictate Paradise Lost, sometimes declaring impatiently "I want to be milked." This copy has the second of the two 1667 title pages, of a total of six dated 1667 through 1669. The two 1667 title pages differ in the size of type for Milton's name and in the rules and border. The likely explanation is that "the border rules were damaged and reset while the first title page was being printed. For the second title page, Milton's name was printed in a slightly smaller type size because there was slightly less space available for it" (Dobranski, "Simmons's Shell Game: The Six Title Pages of Paradise Lost"). This copy contains the added preliminaries including the errata, the short notice from "The Printer to the Reader," "The Argument" (prose summaries of the individual books), and "The Verse," in which Milton argues against the English practice of rhyming line endings in favor of blank verse, "Rime being no necessary Adjunct or true Ornament of Poem or good Verse, in longer works especially, but the Invention of a barbarous Age, to set off wretched matter and lame Meeter." Examples of Paradise Lost with the 1667 title and in an untouched period binding are rare. Only one other such copy, an example sold at Sotheby's in 1978, has appeared for public sale in the past fifty years. As the first title page is unobtainable in a contemporary binding, this is the most desirable example of Paradise Lost available. Quarto. Contemporary blind-ruled calf. Minor worming to outer margin of preliminaries, title stained and with repaired tear, closed tear to Oo2, small burn hole to Rr2 and Rr3. Minor rubbing, some wear to head of spine. Half morocco case.

London: Printed by S. Simmons, and are to be sold by T. Helder, at the Angel in Little Brittain, 1669. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo; VG; bound in full morocco, spine paneled with gilt lettering; gilt text block; some wear and rubbing to binding; ffep through page A3 mostly loose, still attached through two pieces of string to the binding; A4, a4, A4-Z4, Aa4-Tt4, Vv2; small hole in middle of leaf Cc3, impacts text; a few leaves slightly stained. Bookplate of Thomas Jefferson McKee. McKee, 1840-1899, was a well-known book collector and lawyer from New York whose collection was auctioned off in 1900. In the auction, this copy was item number 3091. Autograph of Evert A. Duyckinck, 1839 on top blank margin of title. Evert Augustus Duyckinck, 1816-1878, was an American publisher and biographer. Among his work, he assisted Edgar Allan Poe in printing his Tales collection in 1845 and selected which stories to include. Duyckinck was also known to have lent Melville copies of his books, including a copy of the Decameron and a copy of Paradise Lost. Has the stamp of 'Lenox Library-Duplicate' on verso of title. The Lenox Library was a library incorporated and endowed in 1870, became a part of the founding collection of the New York Public Library in 1895, and opened to the public in this capacity in 1911. Of its collection in 1894, 15,000 of the 83,331 were from the collection of Evert Augustus Duyckinck. Simmons printed 1,200 first edition copies in 1667, and issued them over three years with varying title pages. The title pages have different years, with them reading 1667, 1668, or 1669. There is no known relationship between when a given copy of the text itself was printed, and the attached title page, making establishing priority difficult. This issue includes "Milton's synopsis of each book ("the Arguments" of Books 1-10), his defense of "the Verse," and a list of errata, adding sixteen pages of preliminary matter to the book. Simmons's note to the reader states that he had procured this explanation from Milton because readers of the poem had "stumbled" on first encountering it, asking "why the Poem Rimes not." Milton's strident defense of blank verse (unrhymed iambic pentameter) is printed in large type that fills two pages. His chosen meter, although no longer fashionable by 1667, was the dominant mode of Shakespeare's plays and is the closest to the natural rhythms of English speech. Samuel Johnson later commented sarcastically that, "finding blank verse easier than rhyme, [Milton] was desirous of persuading himself that it is better."

Paradise Lost

Milton, John

This one of the original 1,200 first edition copies printed in 1667 by the publisher Simmons. Simmons issued the first edition over a few years, adding a different title page from time to time. By the time the 1200 copies of the first run had sold out, seven different variations of the title page has been produced, bearing dates of 1667, 1668 and 1669. There is no known relationship between when a given copy of the TEXT itself was printed, and the title page it bears. Thus, the first printed copy of the 1200 copies could just as easily have a 1669 title page as one dated 1667 or 1668. It was just a matter of what copy the publisher pulled out of the original pile, and attached a title page. In addition, the bibliographer Hugh Amory argued convincingly that the 1668 title page was probably issued earlier than the one bearing the date 1667. In this case the title page bears the full name of the author and the year 1669. In addition, this copy includes the important preliminary matter that Milton added during 1668 after the first copies were issued. These include "The Argument," in which Milton describes the program of each of the ten books, and "The Verse," in which Milton defends his choice of using blank verse rather than rhyme. Very good condition, in leather binding and gold gilt-edged pages, housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.

Paradise Lost: A Poem in Twelve Books.

Milton, John

London: Printed by Miles Flesher, for Jacob Tonson, at the Judge's-Head in Chancery-lane near Fleet-street, 1688. First illustrated edition of Milton's masterpiece. Folio, bound in full calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, with portrait frontispiece, illustrated throughout. In very good condition with some toning to the text. An exceptional example. First published in 1667, "Paradise Lost is generally conceded to be one of the greatest poems in the English language; and there is no religious epic in English which measures up to Milton's masterpiece... Milton performed an artist's service to his God" (Magill, 511, 515). The writer and critic Samuel Johnson wrote that Paradise Lost shows off "[Milton's] peculiar power to astonish" and that "[Milton] seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was that Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful." By 1688, when England was on the verge of the Whig revolution, Milton's reputation had revived considerably. He was commended for his republicanism as well as his record as a defender of liberty. His supporters believed that his greatest poetic achievement merited this handsome, monumental edition. One of the earliest examples of subscription publishing, financed by Lord Somers, the fourth edition of Paradise Lost was the first to be printed in folio format and is the first illustrated edition, distinguished by high quality paper, large, clear type, and ample margins. Milton had previously reorganized the poem into twelve books (by splitting Books 7 and 10 of the original) to parallel Virgil's Aeneid more closely.

Paradise Lost - RARE ILLUSTRATED SUBSCRIPTION EDITION

John Milton, Illustrated by Richter and Richter

London: Richter and Richter, 1794, 1794 Full-Leather. No Jacket. Rare Subscription Only Issue, and a FIRST EDITION THUS and in its original leather binding. Privately printed in 1794, this is an outstanding collectable version of the original great fantasy epic. This is the story that has gone on inspiring generations of imaginary worlds, most notably, in our present time, by the brilliant Philip Pullman with his Dark Materials trilogy. Milton created much of the territory we now expect to find in many fantasy writers; here is the most powerful of all Dark Lords; here is a story with a cursed tree, and an invented cosmology; here are ringing battles of good against evil, with angelic cavalries and vast demonic engines of war. This heavy one volume edition is magnificently illustrated with delicate engravings, and it is beautifully typeset on heavyweight handmade paper. The letterpress is very much of the school that says, 'Good typography should not call attention to itself.' The thick and textured paper is a world away from wood pulp; there is no deterioration, and it is still white and clean. There is an engraved portrait of Milton as a frontispiece, an engraved dedication to the Prince of Wales, who heads the list of subscribers, 12 superlative engraved plates, and 12 engraved vignettes. 4to., 283 x 228 mm, bound in the original straight-grained morocco. The spine is gilt, with a black rectangle for the title, which is also gilt and surrounded by delicate tooling. There are hand marbled endpapers and page edges, all of which are - of course - original. It was published in London by J.& H. Richter, 1794. First, and only, subscription Edition with these extraordinary illustrations. The very fine plates and vignettes were created and designed by H. Richter and engraved by J. Richter, a father and son team who published the work themselves. They were reknowned engravers, and this is their masterpiece. This is a beautifully bound copy, with the most exquisite original patinated tan leather binding. The spine is still pretty firm, although there is some slight distress at the edges, not surprising when you consider the size and age of this superb book. Naturally, along with the signs of age, there is evidence of use, but nothing major or structurally damaging. I have decided against having any restoration work carried out. Too often this takes away more than it restores. I have seen only one other copy of this book. It had been entirely rebound. It was glossy as a racehorse, and firm as a rock, but the new leather took away all the graceful signs of age. Like cosmetic surgery, it made the book look false. I sell this special book with some reluctance, aware that I shall probably not see its like again. I hope whoever buys this will keep its original binding. This is a seminal book of English literature, a key part of the Western tradition of enquiry and questioning. A rare book indeed. 0.0 0.0 0.0. Limited Edition.. Hardcover. Very Good.

1759 Paradise Lost & Regain'd John Milton English Poetry Garden of Eden Allegory "The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven." ― John Milton, Paradise Lost An excellent printing of John Milton's most famous work, 'Paradise Lost' and the sequel, 'Paradise Regain'd,' to which is added 'Simon Agonistes' and 'Poems on Several Occasions.' 'Paradise Lost' follows the biblical story of the Fall of Man and the temptation of Adam and Eve. Milton himself states that purpose for this book was to "Justify the ways of God to Men". It covers the characters Adam, Eve, and Satan and the roles each played in the development of religious culture and idolatry. It was critically acclaimed and well-received by many famed personalities, including Samuel Johnson who states. "[Paradise Lost shows] Milton's peculiar power to astonish…and he seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was the Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful.
