Poems upon Several Occasions slightly browned. Twelve leaves engraved plates as called for, most of which are engraved by Michael Burghers or Peter Paul Bouche. Raised bands gilt with marginal dampstain to later leaves, in particular to Samson, lacks the portrait frontis of Milton to face the general title else a very good copy in a superb rebacking of the original boards in calf. This is the second illustrated edition of Paradise Lost after the 1688 edition which lists for $6000 to $10,000. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 002600
