Plate from Paradise Lost

We recently digitized Milton's Paradise Lost with Illustrations by Gustave Doré. This 1898 edition of John Milton's epic 17th century poem is one of several in our collection illustrated by legendary French artist, painter, printmaker, and engraver, Gustave Doré. Doré illustrated hundreds of works of literature, including Don Quixote de la Mancha, Dante's Inferno, and a series of particularly haunting illustrations for Poe's The RavenAside from various editions of Paradise Lost, we also have myriad other books illustrated by Doré, including various editions of La Divina Commedia and The Fables of La Fontainewhich was previously digitized.

As always, all are welcome to visit Special Collections to see the physical copies in person.
