Thomas Balston (1883-1967) was director of the publishers Duckworth and Co., as well as a distinguished scholar of English book production, notably illustrations. In 1947, he published a full-length biography of John Martin (1789-1854). Martin had been commissioned (circa 1822) by the London publisher Septimus Prowett to design and engrave twenty-four plates for a large paper edition of Paradise Lost and a similar set of smaller plates to appear in a smaller edition of the work. It is this smaller set of plates which, in the 1940s, Balston wanted King Penguin Books to publish. King Penguin Books initially accepted the idea, but later decided the plates could not be reproduced adequately. Thus, the work was never published.
