Antique Book - John Milton Poems Hardcover 1800's Belford Clarke & Co. The book is in good shape. It has a nice hardcover with very minimal wear.There is some writing in pencil on the first few pages. Overall all of the pages are nice and crisp, with a few having rough edges. One page has come loose. It's a very nice, and fairly rare book that covers Paradise Lost, along with several of Milton's other works.
