Full title: Paradise Regain'd, A Poem in Four Books to which is Added Samson Agonistes and Poems upon Several Occasions Compos'd at Several Times
An early printing of Paradise Regained, his long poem on the temptation of Christ. Bound with Samson Agonistes (1707) and Poems of Several Occasions (1707, fourth ed), each with their own title pages.
Poor. As mentioned the book lacks both front and rear boards, the pages are tanned and suffer some creasing to the corners but the text remains in strong readable condition, and is a rare early printing published just 36 years after the first edition.
