JG consignment; shelved case 0. "In his translation of PL, William Hog uses the original ten-book version with the arguments printed together preceding the poem; Hog's translations of PL, PR, and SA are the first Latin translations of Milton's three major poems. It was this work that William Lauder used so extensively in his notorious attempt to prove Milton a plagiarist. (See Lauder and commentary there with Eighteenth-century Miltoniana.) This is the first William Hog translation." [Wickenheiser]. 1292750. Shelved Dupont Bookstore. (Inventory #: 1292750)
