the Image of Satan in the 1688 edition of John Milton’s Paradise Lost
The fourth edition of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, published in 1688 by Jacob Tonson, was the first to be illustrated. Tonson’s edition contained twelve illustrations, one for each book of the epic poem. eight of these illustrations were drawn by John Baptist Medina, three by Henry Aldrich, and one by Bernard Lens. My research focuses on the six engravings that include representations of Satan—four by John Baptist Medina and two by Henry Aldrich.
