Terrance Lindall: Elephant Folio to Paradise Lost - Completed

As long-standing member of Terrance Lindall's Paradise Lost Committee, I feel that I should act on the responsibility incumbent upon me due to this august position and announce that Lindall has completed his Elephant Folio to Paradise Lost:
The 13 x 19 inch pages of the Elephant Paradise Lost Folio, with commentary by Dr. Robert J. Wickenheiser, are bound archivally between glassine sheets within aluminum boards, thus assuring preservation. His Eminence (anonymous) kindly lent me some gold brocade as a temporary folio cover. His Eminence is also a book & art collector and scholar. He rather liked the idea that the gold letters IHS are on the cover since, he said ". . . is it not He rather than Satan who is the true hero of the story?" Now that is a great topic! What do you think? Some think Satan is the hero.

His Eminence said also that this book with its 15 border paintings is indeed, in his "humble" opinion, one of the greatest bound folios of all time and can stand next to anything of Blake "as an equal if not more."

A few pages are below. And now I am off to a summer of hot dogs, sodas, and river fishing. And when I get back I am finally going to read the RISE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE.
Thus has Mr. Lindall written and dispersed to committee members and other friends (and I have no idea who "His Eminence" might be, except that he sounds nearly like a churchman). What follow below are the images sent along with the announcement, in the order provided, and with the titles supplied by Mr. Lindall:

Brocade Cover


War in Heaven

Harmless Innocence

On Swift Wing

Satan Ruined

Sin in Book

Very lovely images in an exquisitely designed book, and these are just seven of the fourteen hand-embellished, gold illuminated, 13-inch-by-19-inch illustrated pages. If you wish to see any of these seven in somewhat larger format, just click on the image desired, and it should increase.

Yep, a bit of Latin + a bit of German.
We can suspect that during the Middle Ages somebody did use a phrase like that.

Unless, of course, His Eminence is right, in which case, "IHS" . . .

Yes! Sir Jeffery! Any seeming success that the heaven of the worldly rulers under Satan might achieve is transitory... And we know about this: they must not to hide it or add to it. God will add to him the plagues that are written in the scroll; and if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life...-Revelation 22:18-19

Those who have ''faith in God's word'' only God's knew our heart...
