FROM THE

PROSE WORKS OF JOHN MILTON

WITH

CRITICAL REMARKS AND ELUCIDATIONS.

EDITED BY THE

REV. JAMES J. G. GRAHAM, M.A., Oxon,

VICAR OF MUCH COWARNE, HEREFORDSHIRE.

“Cujus e stylo, nimirum horridulo et incompto, aurum et margaritas effodere
possimus."-Milton's Prolusiones Oratoriæ.

“I have been looking into some of Milton's prose works lately, of which, I
am ashamed to say, I was and am grossly ignorant. It must be a most ex-
pressive warning to men of genius, to read, as they often may in his Tracts,
one sentence written as if an angel had held the pen, and the next, as it seems to
me, more like Cobbett's style than any other I know of."--Letter of the Rev. John
Keble to Sir J. T. Coleridge.

IN ONE VOLUME.

HURST AND BLACKETT, PUBLISHERS,
