Are there any historic premillennial systematic theologies available?

Wayne Grudem and Millard Erickson's systematic theologies are both historic premillennial.

Wayne Grudem and Millard Erickson are two.

Edit: you know what they say about great minds.  It may be true for lesser minds as well.

George Eldon Ladd did not write a systematic theology but is probably one of modern times best proponents of historic premillennialism.

Logos has two of his works:

The Last Things: An Eschatology for Laymen

A Theology of the New Testament

George Eldon Ladd - A Theology of the New Testament

Ladd is the Papa Bear of modern Historic Premillenialism.

Opps - took too long typing and Mark Smith beat me to the punch. 

I wish Logos published more of Ladd's work.  I had to buy his commentary on Revelation in Kindle format.

J. Rodman Williams in Renewal Theology takes this position in his systematic theology book.  He goes so far as to say "among contemporary scholarly commentators on the book of Revelation who are premillennial almost all are nondispensational." I agree there is a movement this way.

Does Systematic Theology: Roman Catholic Perspectives take the (a) millennial perspective or the historic premill?

How does "historic" premil differ from premil?

Historic premillennialism is non-dispensational and post-tribulational, in contrast to dispensational premillennialism.

Blair Laird:

I don't have this book, but in general in early Roman Catholic history talk of Jesus coming to be king on the earth was seen as a threat to allegiance to the Roman emperor and so premillennialism was condemned.

Does "historic" also include the idea that post-trib was an established view for some time and the pre-trib (dispensational) view developed more recently?

I would say that is true.
