Historical Prints of English Divines

Article excerpt

Gathered by the present author from various places over several years, this collection of historical prints of English Divines who lived mainly from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries has now been given to the Archives of the Episcopal Church in Austin, Texas. Each person's name in this list is here followed by a very brief description, then by the year-dates of the person's birth and death, and finally (within parentheses) by the number of various prints of the same person that are in the collection. There are a total of 226 prints, representing 86 different persons in various likenesses. It is hoped that they may be interesting and useful, both for historical reference and also as illustrations for authors preparing articles or books about any of these persons.
