Etching, laid on album sheet; sheet 130 x 75mm (5 x 3"). Loss top right.
John Bastwick (1595?-1654), Puritan religious controversialist and pamphleteer. One of five bust portraits etched by Wenceslaus Hollar of writers punished for their opinions on the High Church policy of Laud. As recounted in the text here, in 1637 they were fined impossibly large sums, lost their ears, and sentenced to life imprisonment (although Bastwick, after a spell in Star Castle in the Isles of Scilly, was released in 1644). It was etched on the same plate as two of the other portraits; the copperplate, now cut, is in the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Hollar (1607-77) was a Bohemian printmaker who spent most of his career working in England, from a Protestant background (although he later converted to Catholicism). Hollar's technical skill has ensured that his prints have always been keenly collected, and comprehensive collections of his work are institutions in London, Berlin and Prague.

On the accession of William III and Mary, he delivered two speeches to their majesties on behalf of the dissenters, and in his last two years he was pastor of the presbyterian church in Hackney.

Mezzotint, Printsellers' blindstamp. Limited to 500. 420 x 570mm. Trimmed to Plate.
John Bright was born in Rochdale in 1811, the son of a Quaker cotton spinner. He was educated at a succession of Quaker schools in the north of England, where he developed a lifelong love of the Bible and of the 17th-century English Puritan poets, especially Milton. Quaker beliefs shaped his politics, which consisted mainly of demands for an end to social, political, or religious inequalities between individuals and between peoples. The Brights were benevolent employers, but their faith in self-help and independence placed Bright at the head of the manufacturers who opposed factory legislation, trade unions, and social reform. He became MP for Durham in 1843 and for Manchester in 1847. He spoke against the Corn Laws in parliament during Peel's second ministry until the laws were repealed in 1846. Bright was a member of the Peace Society and denounced the Crimean War (1854-56) as un-Christian, contrary to the principles of international free trade, and harmful to British interests. In 1868 Bright accepted the post of President of the Board of Trade in Gladstone's first ministry but retired through ill-health in 1870. He returned to political life in 1881 as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. He retired in 1882 because he opposed Gladstone's Home Rule policy for Ireland. Bright announced that he was not prepared to see power given to Irish nationalists who had made a mockery of parliamentary government. Bright was influential in the Unionist group in parliament and was regarded as one of the most eloquent speakers of his time.

Engraving, sheet 220 x 145mm (8¾ x 5¾"). Trimmed; tipped into album sheet.
Ralph Brownrigg (1592-1659), bishop of Exeter. A noted Calvinist, Brownrigg held positions at St Catherine's College and Cambridge University before he lost them in 1645, when he was arrested for giving a sermon in which he was reported to have instructed Christians to put obedience to their sovereign before following Christian practice. The following year Brownrigg lost his episcopal office too, limiting his activities in his final years, although he achieved a posthumous reputation following the publication of his sermons, a 1661 volume of which this print was the frontspiece to. Engraving by William Faithorne (c.1620-91), printmaker who was apprenticed to the printseller William Peake, with whom he served in the royalist army during the civil war. At the Restoration Faithorne was appointed engraver in copper to the king, doubtless as reward for his devotion to the Stuart cause. The finest native British engraver born before the eighteenth century, Faithorne was highly esteemed by Pepys (who recorded many visits to his shop) while enthusiasts such as Horace Walpole ensured his posthumous reputation, which led to fine proofs of his work fetching extraordinary prices in the late Georgian period.

Printed for H. Parker & E. Bakewell in Cornhill London.
Mezzotint. Plate: 200 x 265mm (8 x 10½") very large margins.
Jean (John) Calvin (1509 - 1564), theologian of the French reformation, in an oval frame, with full beard and wearing cap and fur-lined coat. Calvin was a tireless polemic and apologetic writer who generated much controversy. He also exchanged cordial and supportive letters with many reformers, including Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger. In addition to the Institutes, he wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, as well as theological treatises and confessional documents. He regularly preached sermons throughout the week in Geneva. Calvin was influenced by the Augustinian tradition, which led him to expound the doctrine of predestination and the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation. Calvin's writing and preachings provided the seeds for the branch of theology that bears his name. The Reformed and Presbyterian churches, which look to Calvin as a chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world. By John Faber the Elder (c.1660 - 1721), for a set of 21 plates of Protestant reformers.

Rev. James Caughey.
Rev. James Caughey. "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by hm, seeing that he ever liveth to make intercession for them." - Hebrews vii. 25.
Norfolk-street Weslyan Chapel, Thursday Evening, August 8th, 1844.
Wood engraving. 228 x 185mm. 9" x 7½". One crease from the top right-hand corner through the image.
Silhouette of James Caughey, an Irish-born emigrant to the United States who was converted in the times of revival in 1830-31 and soon after ordained to the Methodist ministry. He experienced powerful revivals in Canada but it was his revival labours in Great Britain during the 1840’s, for which he is most well known. This book is a history of the revival he experienced across Britain when he claims to have seen “20,000 profess faith in Christ and 10,000 profess sanctification.” He campaigned in Ireland and England, mainly in Methodist circles, drawing huge crowds wherever he went. He was a powerful preacher who frequently used the ‘word of knowledge’ in his sermons, resulting in great conviction of sin. Among the converts during this campaign was the young William Booth, who professed salvation during Caughey’s Nottingham crusade and immediately took to street preaching.
