PARADISE LOST. With illustrations, designed and engraved by John Martin.
Septimus Prowett. London. 1827 - FIRST MARTIN EDITION. Two large 8vo volumes (11.1 X 8.2 inches). Vol. 1. vi, 228pp. Vol. 2. iv, 218pp. Beautifully Illustrated with 24 fine Mezzotint engravings, each with a plain tissue paper guard. There is some foxing, but mostly to the margins, throughout both volumes and affecting both the text and illustration leaves. Overall a very good copy. Finely bound in attractive nineteenth century half dark red morocco bindings. Spines with five raised bands, each with gilt ruled line. Compartments triple ruled and lettered in gilt. Marbled paper on boards. Marbled endpapers. Top edges gilt. Neat later inscription to the front blank endpaper of volume one. A little rubbing and bumping to the extremities of the bindings but overall a very good set of this beautifully illustrated edition in attractive nineteenth century leather bindings.
