Higher priority commitments (I do need to get paid, and saving Wellington's fellow GSDs does rank a tad higher than my personal projects) means that the long-awaited Milton biography for the AI Illustrated Edition is still not finished although some progress has been paid - he has now finished university!
Of course, that hasn't stopped me from purchasing more versions to add to the collection and this latest batch has a couple of interesting items.
Collins Classics Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained (2013)
The Poetical Works of Milton, Oxford University Press (1941)
