First edition, one of 300 copies, inscribed ‘for D. G. Bridson, Sept. 21, 1957, Louis Zukofsky’.

Bridson and Zukofsky had mixed in the same circles since the ’30s, both friends of Pound and contributors to the same poetry journals, as well as to Pound’s Active Anthology. But they only met for the first time in London in 1957 when Zukofsky was on a European trip, the basis of his long poem ‘4 Other Countries’.

MILTON, John. Paolo ROLLI, translator.

Del Paradiso perduto Poema inglese.

First edition of the first complete Italian translation of Milton’s Paradise Lost, the second issue, with a cancel title-page dated 1736 and further enumerating Rolli’s academic titles. Rolli started to work on this translation in 1719, publishing the first six books in London in 1729. Still incomplete, Rolli’s work was placed on the Index librorum prohibitorum in January 1732. The complete translation was finally published in 1735 by Charles Bennet (‘Despite the change in imprint to Charles Bennet, Samuel Aris [who had printed the first six books] probably printed the entire poem, for his signed ornaments appear on sheets throughout the work’, Coleridge, p. 207), and then often reprinted throughout the eighteenth century.
