Paradise Lost & Paradise Regain'd.
Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1902 & 1905. Presentation copy of Paradise Regain'd inscribed by the printer Emery Walker to Robert Catterson Smith together with a copy of Paradise Lost. Two volumes, each limited to 325 copies, apparently a married set. Printed in red and black throughout. Sm. 4to., original full limp vellum by the Doves Bindery, spine lettered in gilt. Regain'd is an extremely good, fresh and crisp copy, with only a slight scratch to the bottom of the spine, Lost has a dust-soiled top edge and a few creases and tiny marks but is fundamentally a good, bright copy. Paradise Regain'd has a remarkable inscription written by the printer Emery Walker on his 80th birthday in 1933 to Robert Catterson-Smith who was the principal of the Birmingham School of Art and who worked with Morris, Emery Walker and Burne-Jones on the Kelmscott Chaucer. Paradise Lost has a 1907 ownership inscription on the front free endpaper.
