Satan In Council, 1831. Mezzotint, artist, title and text in plate below image.
Text reads "Designed by John Martin, engraved by John Martin. High on a
throne of royal state, which far / outshone the wealth of Ormus and of Ind, /
or where the gorgeous East with richest hand / show'rs on her kings Barbaric
pearl and gold, / Satan exalted sat, by merit raised / to that bad eminence;
and from despair / thus high uplifted beyond hope, aspires / beyond thus
high, insatiate to pursue / vain war with heaven; and by success untaught /
his proud imaginations thus display'd." Ref: Campbell #112.
