A very handsomely bound copy of Milton's poetry, with elegant gauffred edges, in a Victorian illustrated edition.
Duodecimo (160 x 98 mm). Finely bound Leighton Son & Hodge in contemporary black morocco, titles in gilt with blind decorative tooling and ruling to spine, boards elegantly tooled in blind, marbled endpapers, gauffered gilt edges, dark blue silk page marker.
Engraved frontispiece and 7 plates, 6 pp. publisher's advertisements at end.
Discreet colour restoration, the binding otherwise sharp, light foxing to frontispiece, else internally clean and fresh; an attractive, very good copy indeed.
