The Shorter Poems of John Milton. With Twelve Illustrations.
- London: Seeley, 1889. Folio, xx, 124 pages. With twelve full-page etchings after paintings by Palmer. Original gold-stamped vellum over boards, slight soiling to binding as usual with white vellum. Large-paper copy, limited to 135 copies (#40). Prepared by A.H. Palmer as a companion to the Virgil, this book used highly innovative photographic techniques to render paintings as etchings; these were achieved with the help of Dujardin and the printer Goulding. The large-paper edition is very scarce, and is vastly preferable to the regular issue. “This stately volume contains twelve facsimiles of drawings by Palmer. They rank with his best work, and three notable etchings were inspired by them.” Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England from 1790-1914, 223. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
