The Seattle p-i has a reviewish sort of thing of an exhibition at Princeton of images various authors, including this one of Milton:
William Marshall’s 1645 Engraving Of John Milton.
This portrait, produced for John Milton’s first published book of verse, includes the writer’s opinion of his likeness in the caption. Written in ancient Greek–which the artist could not understand–Milton invited the reader to “laugh at the artist’s botched attempt” at portraiture.
