Satan in Eden (p. 37)

Gustav Dore (1832 – 1883) was one of the pre-eminent illustrators of the Victorian age. Born in Paris, and working mainly through wooden engraved prints he produced illustrations for everyone from Byron to Edgar Allen Poe. The beautiful prints below depict scene’s in Milton’s Paradise Lost. They may have been from the 50 plates he produced for an 1866 edition of Paradise Lost, or later re-publishings. I picked these up for a song Spitafield’s Market. There were more on sale, and I kick myself to this day for not buying more of them…
