Item Description: Oxford University Press, UK, 2005. Hard Cover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. First Edition. Paradise Lost by John Milton with special forward by Philip Pullman. SIGNED by Philip Pullman to the main title page. Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle ranges across three worlds - heaven, hell, and earth - as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the centre of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love. . Milton's influence has been felt by many writers since, none more so in recent times than the novelist Philip Pullman. His acclaimed trilogy Dark Materials takes its title from a line in the poem, and the worlds he created for Lyra and Will have entranced readers across generations. His introduction to the poem is a tribute that is personal and full of insight; his enthusiasm for Milton's language, skill, and supreme gifts as a storyteller is infectious and instructive. He encourages readers above all to experience the poem for themselves, and surrender to its enchantment. A superbly presented book in as new condition. None priceclipped and with images from the signing. Fine in wrappers. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 000831

Item Description: London George Bell and Sons 1908, 1908. 2 volumes. Engraved frontispiece of Milton. Small 8vo, finely bound by Bickers and Sons in full navy blue calf, spines in six compartments each separated by raised bands, gilt tooled central ornamental device in four compartments and gilt lettering in two, gilt lettered compartments and covers ruled in gilt, fine marbled endpapers, board edges gilt-tooled, t.e.g., turn-ins tooled in blind. lxiv, 337; xvi, 387. A fine, handsome and very nicely preserved set, but for some light and even mellowing to the spines. HANDSOMELY BOUND AND SIGNED BINDING BY BICKERS. In PARADISE LOST, PARADISE REGAINED and SAMSON AGONISTES Milton revived the heroic verse of Homer and Virgil to frame the tale of Satan and Paradise that has become the best-known epic poem written in English. He had difficulty in finding a publisher because of the plague of 1665, which killed many pressmen, and the Great Fire of the following year, which destroyed many printing houses—and those publishers who were still operating were wary of the project because of Milton's anti-Restoration sympathies. Simmons, to whom he finally came, drove a hard bargain, and according to the agreement reached and the number of copies sold Milton was paid a total of £15. Milton’s work survives and is revered to this day as amongst the most significant poetry and prose ever penned and additionally important, at a defining moment in the development of the English language. A truly towering figure, Milton remains one of the most celebrated and analyzed poets in English literature. Dryden described ‘Paradise Lost’ as ‘one of the greatest, most noble and sublime poems which either this age or nation has produced,’ while Blake, keying in on the poem’s heretical implications, described Milton as ‘a true Poet, and of the Devil’s party without knowing it.’ This thorough collection includes not only ‘Paradise Lost’ and the other major works, but the sonnets, psalms, translations, and his work in Latin.
