Item Description: Septimus Prowett, London, 1827. Imperial quarto. (14 3/8 x 10 1/4 inches). 24 mezzotint engraved plates by John Martin. 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. 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.

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: London: Septimus Prowett, 1827, 1827. 2 volumes, large quarto (363 x 265 mm). Contemporary dark green morocco, raised bands, titles to spine and floral rolls to spine ends gilt, boards with double ruling in gilt and triple ruling in blind, decorative gilt rolls to edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Spines slightly sunned, extremities gently rubbed, minor wear to corners, boards a touch scuffed and soiled, light foxing to margins of text block and plates. An excellent set. With 24 mezzotint plates by John Martin, 23 retaining the tissue guards. First edition, with the large plates by John Martin (1789-1854), the British Romantic artist. While famous for his striking apocalyptic oil paintings, Martin also illustrated books, working mainly in the technically demanding medium mezzotint, which, with its velvety darkness and rich tonal qualities, allowed the artist to emulate painterly effects. In 1823, Prowett commissioned 24 large plates (280 x 190 mm) by Martin for a new edition of Paradise Lost; the publisher would later commission an additional set of smaller plates (200 x 150 mm). As a result, the 1827 Paradise Lost appeared in four distinct formats: folio or quarto with the large plates, and quarto or octavo with the smaller plates. Milton Ray describes Martin's edition of Paradise Lost as "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, the many recently published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunel's new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable." (The Illustrator and the Book in England, p. 69). This copy from the library of British diplomat David Montagu Erskine (1776-1855), with his bookplate to front pastedowns and his ownership signature in pencil to Volume I front flyleaf. Erskine served as the British envoy to Washington (1806-9), Stuttgart (1824-8), and Munich (1828-43). Bookseller Inventory # 94835

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. 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

Item Description: 1858. 4to. Contemporary red pebble-grain morocco by Andrew Grieve of Edinburgh, boards with wide gilt borders and large oval gilt device at centre of both covers, spine lettered in gilt, and richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt with rich gauffering; pp. [x], 373; 24 full-page mezzotinted plates by John Martin. Spine a little darkened, just a little rubbing to boards, occasional light, inoffensive, foxing, neat ink inscription, generally a very good clean copy - much nicer than is usually found. One of the most famous illustrated books published in England and the only book for which John Martin is now remembered. It was first published in 1827 in several forms. Septimus Prowett, the original publisher, paid Martin the exceptional sum of £2,000 to do 24 folio size mezzotints to illustrate Paradise Lost and a further £1,500 for a smaller set of the same designs. "The publication was a complete success, and Martin's plates won lasting renown . There have been many ambitious schemes of publishing which have failed because the artist did not rise to the height of his opportunity, but this was emphatically not the case with Martin . among the plates of Paradise Lost there is a high proportion of unique and original design."

Item Description: London; Septimus Prowett c-27, 1825. Mezzotint, image approximately 195 x 275 mm, in the lower right-hand corner 'Proof.' Light surface dirt and browning. 20C Hogarth frame with stained cream mount. Line 502-8: With kisses pure; aside the devil turned / For envy, yet with jealous leer malign / Eyed them askance, and to himself thus plained: / 'Sight hateful, sight tormenting! Thus these two, / Imparadised in one another's arms, / The happier Eden, shall enjoy their fill / Of bliss on bliss, while I to hell am thrust." The Tate Gallery: "In the late 1810s and early 1820s Martin had experimented with various printmaking techniques. In 1824 he mastered mezzotint and received an extraordinarily lucrative commission to produce mezzotint illustrations to John Miltonís epic poem Paradise Lost. He now concentrated on printmaking rather than oil painting as a means of making money out of his art. The Paradise Lost prints were applauded for their technical invention and poetic power. Although mezzotint was traditionally used as a way of reproducing paintings, Martinís prints were original compositions and were marketed as having Ďall the spirit and finish of the Painterís touchí. The prints were sold across the world, and Martinís fame and influence spread.". Bookseller Inventory # 55472
