From the Publisher:

"Wickenheiser's is one of the major collections of materials related to John Milton, editions and studies and artworks, in the world . . . . indicating the breath and nature of Milton's position in the literary, political, religious, and sociological world over the nearly three and a half centuries since his death."--John T. Shawcross, professor emeritus of English, University of Kentucky

"There is, to the best of my knowledge, no other privately held collection that even remotely begins to approach the Wickenheiser Collection in scope, range, or importance."--G. W. Stuart, Jr., antiquarian book dealer and Milton specialist

About the Author:

Robert J. Wickenheiser earned his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in English from the University of Minnesota. After teaching Milton at Princeton University for a number of years, he became president of Mount St. Mary's College in Maryland and subsequently of St. Bonaventure University in New York.
