Description
1880 Gustave Doré Illustrated Milton Paradise Lost Bible Gallery Art Literature



“The most popular and successful French book illustrator of the mid-19th century!”



Famous French artist, Gustave Doré was most known for his incredible woodcut engravings. Doré's Romantic style of illustration, supremely imaginative and richly detailed, was ideally suited to literary subjects. Artists and art lovers will find in these pages’ supreme examples of the illustrator's art!

“When Cassell saw the Dore Bible, they personally approached Dore to do Milton” (Malan, Gustav Dore).



Dore established himself as a prolific 19th-century illustrated and artist and the demand for his work was escalating. Thus, this later collection of undated editions is valuable and desirable much like many of the other titles Dore illustrated.

“Gustave Dore, it has always seemed to me, was a motion-picture art director born before his time.” (Harryhausen, Master of Imagination).



This collection of three books illustrated by Dore include:

Milton's Paradise lost; Illustrated by Gustave Doré

New York, London, and Paris: Cassell, Peter, Galpin & Co. [1866].

Numerous Full-page engravings.

Milton's Paradise lost; Illustrated by Gustave Doré
