Copy of Milton’s Paradise Lost
…and a rare billhead found!
John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost has particular local relevance both in that the author lived in Chalfont St Giles, and that the book is one of the earliest pieces of evidence for the trade and manufacture of Windsor chairs in Wycombe district.
This copy is from 1740 – it contains a billhead for William Treacher with two pictures of chairs, one ladderback joined chair with a cane seat and box stretchers, the other a hoop-back Windsor armchair with cow horn stretchers. William Treacher was one of the earliest chair makers in the area.
