There is a set of beautiful engravings by Albert Decaris on Ebay. I do not think these can be seen anywhere else online:
ARTIST: ALBERT DECARIS (1901-1988)
TITLE: FROM THE SAMSON AGONISTES SUITE c. 1939
This RARE ENGRAVING is from the Limited Edition Suite "John Milton Samson Agonistes". This engraving is a very strong impression by WORLD RENOWNED Artist Albert Decaris (Read biography below). The suite is limited to only 55 in the world.
MEDIUM: Limited Edition Engraving of ONLY 55 in the world. Since this was created in 1939, I suspect not all 55 are still in circulation making this piece even more RARE!
SIZE: 15 x 11 inches unframed
Page xii of the preface "Why Milton Matters" has a brief reference putting this in the context of its time:
