Item Description: Septimus Prowett, London, 1827. Imperial quarto. Contemporary half green morocco over marbled paper covered boards, spines in five compartments divided by double-raised bands, lettered in the second, third and fourth compartments, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: Thomas Clarke, F.S.A. (armorial bookplate) Imperial quarto Prowett edition of Milton's Paradise Lost, with the larger size masterful illustrations by John Martin: one of the "most significant series of British book illustrations ever to have been produced" (Campbell). This notable edition of Milton's Paradise Lost was published simultaneously in both imperial quarto (as here) and imperial octavo editions. In addition, fifty copies of large-paper, deluxe issues of each edition were available with India proof plates (i.e. 50 copies of large-paper imperial quarto and 50 copies of large-paper imperial octavo, the latter often confused with the present imperial quarto edition as it is similar in sheet size but not image size). Suites of the plates and individual plates, without text, were also issued separately. "This book was one of the great publishing enterprises of the age . The apocalyptic romanticism of his conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunels new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" (Ray). "Martins illustrations to John Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost represent a turning point in his career. The vast majority of Martins most famous works . were based upon either Miltonic or biblical subject matter. The Paradise Lost series are of particular importance both as one of his chief bodies of designs and as the focal point for the beginning of his career as a mezzotint engraver. Begun by early 1824, this series of engravings was the result of a commission from a little known American publisher, named Septimus Prowett . To appreciate the impact which Martin's designs had upon his public, one must realize the extent to which these extraordinary visions represented an entirely new conception of approach to the art of illustration. Not only were they original in the truest sense of the word, designed directly on the plates without the aid of preparatory sketches, they were some of the earliest mezzotints to have been made using soft steel rather than copper, and they were the first illustrations of Milton's epic work to have been made in the mezzotint medium . The greatest significance of Martin's illustrations, however, was in their spectacular visionary content . Martin laid before his public the spectacular settings of the epic tale, the open voids of the Creation, the vast vaulted caverns of Hell vanishing into the utter blackness of Chaos, the daunting scale of the city of Pandemonium, and the sweeping beauty of Heaven itself. These images have no serious counterpart and are the very essence of the sublime in Romantic art. They are without doubt one of the most significant series of British book illustrations ever to have been produced" (Campbell). Lowndes IV, p.1560; Allibone, p. 1300; Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England , 69; Campbell, John Martin, Visionary Printmaker , pp. 38-41. (14 3/8 x 10 1/4 inches). 24 mezzotint engraved plates by John Martin. Bookseller Inventory # 26789

Item Description: London Septimus Prowett, 1827. John Miltonís "Paradise Lost" with John Martinís Illustrations, One of 50 copies MILTON, John. The Paradise Lost of Milton. With Illustrations, Designed and Engraved by John Martin. London: Septimus Prowett, 1827. First (Imperial Quarto) edition. One of only 50 copies with the smaller set of engravings. According to Campbell there were two issues of the Imperial Quarto Edition: "(2) Imperial Quarto Edition, measuring 10 7/8 x 15 1/4 in., with fully lettered prints from the larger set of plates, at £10 16s.(3) Imperial Quarto Edition, measuring 10 7/8 x 15 1/4 in., containing lettered proofs of the smaller set of the engravings: limited to 50 copies, at 12 guineas for the complete publication." Thus even though the images were smaller, this edition was more expensive upon publication. Campbell states "only three copies of the Imperial Quarto edition containing proofs from the smaller set of engravings are now known" (this was in 1992). Two volumes bound in one. Large quarto (14 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches; 366 x 268 mm.). [4], 228; [2], 218 pp. Twenty-four mezzotint plates in the smaller format (image size: 8 x 5 1/2 inches), with tissue guards. Contemporary burgundy pebble-grain morocco. Covers decoratively paneled in gilt, spines paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt spine bands, gilt board edges, wide gilt-tooled dentelles, marbled endpapers and doublures, all edges gilt. Some light foxing (mainly to the plate margins and prelims). An excellent copy of this scarce edition. "This book was one of the great publishing enterprises of the age. It appeared in eight different formats, four with the large plates (8 by 11 inches) and four with the small (6 by 8 inches). Martin executed the forty-eight mezzotints himself. The apocalyptic romanticism of his conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunelís new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" (Ray). "Martinís illustrations to John Miltonís epic poem Paradise Lost represent a turning point in his career. The vast majority of Martinís most famous works.were based upon either Miltonic or biblical subject matteróthe Paradise Lost series are of particular importance both as one of his chief bodies of designs and as the focal point for the beginning of his career as a mezzotint engraver. Begun by early 1824, this series of engravings was the result of a commission from a little known American publisher, names Septimus Prowett. Prowett, who was based in London, approached Martin to produce 24 mezzotint illustrations.to accompany an issue of Miltonís text which was to be produced in twelve parts.To appreciate the impact which Martinís designs had upon his public, one must realize the extent to which these extraordinary visions represented an entirely new conception of approach to the art of illustration.

Item Description: Septimus Prowett. London. 1827, 1827. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Illustrated Edition. FIRST MARTIN EDITION. Two large 4to volumes (14.8 X 10.9 inches). Vol. 1. v, 228pp. Vol. 2. iv, 218pp. Beautifully Illustrated with 24 fine Mezzotint engravings. 23 of the 24 original plain tissue paper guards are still present. There is some foxing, but mostly to the margins, throughout both volumes and affecting the text and illustration leaves. Some pages are unspotted and very clean but some leaves suffer to much of the page area. Overall a very good copy. Finely bound in attractive early nineteenth century full dark green morocco bindings. Spines with four double raised bands with gilt rule between them. Each band with triple thin rule and floral end decorations, all in gilt. Compartments double ruled and lettered in gilt, and with blind stamped wavy decorative lines. Top and bottom of the spines with decorative floral gilt roles. Boards with double gilt and triple blind ruled borders. Board edges with gilt floral decoration. Gilt inner dentelles. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. A little rubbing and bumping to the extremities but overall a very good set of this beautifully illustrated edition in an attractive contemporary fine binding. This copy is one of the larger format copies with the images measuring 11 x 8 inches and printed on larger paper. There were also copies issued in the smaller octavo format with smaller plates measuring 8 x 6 inches, engraved separately by Martin for that edition. Bookplates of British Diplomat and Politician, David Montagu Erskine, 2nd Baron Erskine, on the front paste-down endpapers of each volume and his name, signed simply Erskine, in pencil on the front blank endpaper of volume one. Erskine (1776 - 1855) was admitted to Lincoln's Inn in 1802 entitled to practice as a barrister but chose not to engage in legal work, instead entering the world of politics. He was briefly the Member of Parliament (Whig) for Portsmouth between February 1806 and October 1806, when he was appointed as British Envoy to the United States of America in Washington, a post he held until 1809. He succeeded to the title of 2nd Baron Erskine of Restormel Castle, co. Cornwall in 1823 and was later employed in roles as British Envoy to Stuttgart between 1824 and 1828 and Munich between 1828 and 1843. Bookseller Inventory # 9066

Item Description: London: Sampson Low, Son, and Marston, 1866, 1866. Folio (370 × 260 mm). Contemporary red morocco by A. W. Bain, spine elaborately gilt in compartments with yellow morocco onlays, boards elaborately gilt-panelled with green morocco onlays, marbled endpapers, turn-ins and all edges gilt. Binding rubbed and scuffed, some spotting to contents, particularly the edges of the plates but not usually affecting the image. A very good copy. 24 plates by John Martin. A handsomely bound volume of Martin's Paradise Lost, originally published in 1827. John Martin's dramatic panoramas of Old Testament scenes achieved a "hold on the popular imagination unparalleled in his day" (ODNB). Disdained by the artistic establishment, he reached out to the public by staging paid viewings and selling prints of his monumental canvases, and he became the most popular artist-showman of the day. "Mezzotint is a medium peculiarly suited to Manichaean fantasies: the black void of the prepared plate, blackness scraped away to create forms and highlights. Paradise Lost, illustrated in two sets of mezzotints for the publisher Septimus Prowett in 1825Ė7, was ideal material for Martin, who echoed Milton's solemnity while opening out his cadences in the imagery of groves and chases bathed in silvery light and an underworld where fires tongue the darkness and bridges span nothingness and Satan's armies infest the gloom. In mezzotint Martin's vision thrived" (ODNB). Bookseller Inventory # 77725
