This fine first edition of Milton's collected works was once owned by William Congreve, the great English playwright who also possessed the autograph manuscript to Paradise Lost by John Milton. Samson Agonistes was first published together with Paradise Regained in 1670; the Clark Library owns an edition published in 1671. The collected works include the 1688 edition of Samson Agonistes.
