Presented for your consideration is this very rare edition of the classic novel, The Paradise Lost by John Milton. The book was published in 1851 by Baker and Scribner in New York.
This edition was edited by Rev. James Robert Boyd and contains notes both explanatory and critical. The 542 page book contains Milton's epic poem about the temptation of Adam & Eve by the fallen angel, Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.
It is essentially a retelling/rewriting of the book of Genesis. All pages appear to be intact and free of damage outside of some mild foxing. It is finished with an olive green hardcover with embossing on both covers and the spine. Gold embossed lettering is also on the spine.
This hard to find book would make a great addition to any classics or rare book collection! As previously stated there is some mild page foxing. Name of a previous owner is on the inside front cover. Light cover wear, mainly at the edges. Back cover has some staining along the top edge.
