Christ's College Magazine, Michaelmas Term, 1908, Vol. 23 free pdf Excerpt from Christ's College Magazine, Michaelmas Term, 1908, Vol. 23: Milton Tercentenary Number The miniature of Milton which is photographed as our frontispiece belongs to Mr. A. E. Shipley, and is No. 16 in the catalogue of the Milton exhibition, from which we take the following particulars: "The miniature almost exactly resembles the Houbraken engraving dated 1741, and it has been suggested, with some degree of probability, that it was prepared in order to send to Houbraken in Amsterdam, that from it he might engrave his plate. Such a course was often pursued with regard to original works. It was very possibly painted by Bernard Lens the younger. It is not an exact copy of the Nuneham portrait, which purports to be an absolute copy of the lost Onslow portrait. In costume the two are identical, but in expression of countenance they are not, although the miniature is identical with the engraving. It came from the collection of Mr W. S. Green, of Exeter Mansions, Shaftesbury Avenue, and was purchased by its present owner in 1903. It may of course be a copy, by a miniature painter, from the Houbraken engraving: especially as the colour of the costume differs from that of the Nuneham portrait, where the coat is black while in the miniature it is blue- but it is suggested that the first suggestion is more likely to be the correct one."
