‘Milton's Cottage, Chalfont-St-Giles’, Etching, 1931


Signed, titled and inscribed ‘1st state’. Printed on wove paper.

In the Summer of 1665, leaving London to escape the plague, the English poet and parliamentarian John Milton moved to the Buckinghamshire village of Chalfont St. Giles. He was to live in this cottage for less than a year, yet it was here he completed 'Paradise Lost' and 'Paradise Regained' was conceived. The 16th-century cottage on Deansway stands much as it did during Milton's residence.' - Robert Meyrick
