RARE Official Wax Seal of John Milton - English Poet Who Authored Paradise Lost
JOHN MILTON. John Milton (1608-1674) was an English poet, pamphleteer, and historian who is widely considered the most significant English author after William Shakespeare. Milton is best known for Paradise Lost, widely regarded as the greatest epic poem in English. VIRTUALLY NONEXISTENT AND HIGHLY DESIRABLE OFFICIAL WAX SEAL OF JOHN MILTON, THE WELL-KNOWN ENGLISH POET WHO AUTHORED PARADISE LOST Official wax seal of John Milton clipped from a document. The wax seal has been attached to a card identifying it as being the seal of Milton, nearly complete and intact with only the right side having been cracked, measures 4.75" by 3.75", and in fine condition with age toning. We were unable to locate any wax seals belonging to Milton available for sale at auction in the past 25 years making the present seal virtually nonexistent and highly desirable.
