LA PARADIS PERDU, POËME . TRADUIT EN VERS FRANCOIS
Chez J.-Fr. Bastien, Paris 1779 - xii,243,[1]; [4],251,[1],[4]pp. Two volumes bound in one. Octavo. Handsome contemporary brown calf, spine gilt extra, gilt label. Small early bookseller's stamp on first title, small ink paraph on title, manuscript identification of the translator at the end of the preface, boards very slightly bowed, otherwise a near fine, large copy. An elegant edition of this translation in verse, attributed by an early note to Abbé Henri-Martin Le Roy. There were a number of 18th century translations into French of Milton's epics, both in prose and in verse, beginning with that by Dupré de Saint-Maur in 1729. The approbation in this edition is dated 30 Janvier 1777. Barbier's entries of translators do not encompass this edition. Without identifying the translator, OCLC locates three copies of this edition, only one of them in North America.
