H. Holbein pinxit [c.1650]
Engraving, platemark 150 x 90mm (6 x 3½"). Trimmed from large sheet; glued to backing sheet.
Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), Dutch Renaissance humanist and a Catholic theologian. Erasmus prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament, and also wrote The Praise of Folly, Handbook of a Christian Knight, On Civility in Children, Copia: Foundations of the Abundant Style, Julius Exclusus, and many other works. Erasmus lived through the Reformation period and he consistently criticized some contemporary popular Christian beliefs. In relation to clerical abuses in the Church, Erasmus remained committed to reforming the Church from within. He also held to Catholic doctrines such as that of free will, which some Protestant Reformers rejected in favour of the doctrine of predestination. His middle road disappointed and even angered many Protestants, such as Martin Luther, as well as conservative Catholics. This is one of numerous engravings reproducing the likeness of Erasmus by Hans Holbein the younger.

Line engraving, platemark approx. 520 x 400mm (20½ x 15¾") very large margins. Uncut.
Martin Luther (1483-1546), theologian whose writings inspired the Protestant Reformation. In 1517 he famously published his '95 theses' attacking papal abuses and the sale of indulgences. Excommunicated by the Catholic church and declared a heretic, Luther's ideas were the foundation of a new conception of Christianity. He also translated the Bible into German to make it accessible to a larger number of people, contributing to the growth of the German language in the process. Engraving supposedly after Cranach, although far more in the idiom of the nineteenth century than Cranach's portraits of Luther.

Samuel Plimsoll.
Samuel Plimsoll.
Lock and Whitfield [...] Woodbury Process [c.1875].
Photograph mounted on printed sheet, sheet 270 x 205mm (10½ x 8").
Samuel Plimsoll (1824-98), politician and shipping reformer. An M.P. for Derby, Plimsoll's six-year campaign against overloaded 'coffin-ships' (over-insured and then deliberately overloaded in the hope of collecting insurance money) resulted in the 1876 Merchant Shipping Act. This introduced the 'Plimsoll Line', a load line reflecting a vessel's buoyancy. Plimsoll's name was also bestowed on the rubber-soled canvas shoes manufactured by the Liverpool Rubber Company in 1876: the company's salesman, Philip Lace, said that the shoes were water-tight as long as they were not immersed above the level of the band, and that this reminded him of the Plimsoll line.
