historical insights into one of the world’s greatest thinkers and poets. List price: $110, WAH Shop price $75The Robert J. Wickenheiser Collection of the seventeenth-century English poet John Milton (1608-1674) brings the library its first major seventeenth-century research collection, to join the earlier acquisition of major collections from subsequent periods. It was acquired for Thomas Cooper Library in 2006 with leading support from William L. Richter and The William L. Richter Family Foundation. The Wickenheiser Collection, built up over a thirty-five year period, has more than 6,000 volumes. It includes more than sixty first and other seventeenth-century editions of Milton’s own writings, and significant holdings also of 17th century Miltoniana. Its special focus on illustrated editions make it perhaps the most comprehensive collection ever of Milton illustration, from the first illustrated edition of Paradise Lost (1688) through all the major illustrators that follow, particularly John Martin (1789-1854) and Gustave Doré (1832-1833), with original drawings by several of the artists. The collection’s 18th, 19th, and 20th Milton editions preserve a comprehensive record of Milton's continuing impact, while holdings of Milton biography, scholarship, and criticism document knowledge of Milton’s writings and influence.
