Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: “The Death & Martyrdom of Damlip.” Adam Damlip, clothed only in a loincloth, lies on ground after being cut down from hanging by the neck on the gallows above; the rope is still around his neck. His bowels are ripped out by the hands of the executioner, whose axe lies on the ground by Damlip beside a small fire. A man on horseback appears to be the supervisor for the execution; a large crowd observes from behind. Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/53, which appears in each of the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. JPEG file (398 KB).
Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: George Marsh, barefoot, stands chained to a stake beneath a barrel of hot tar while a man lights the bundles of faggots piled around him. He holds an open book, presumably a Bible, while declaring "Not upon y [the] Condition." Marsh is surrounded by a large group of soldiers; a man on horseback holds out a paper. According to the text that surrounds the image, the horseman is the Deputy Chamberlain of Chester, who carries with him a “Writing under a Great Seal” that is being offered to Marsh as a pardon if he would recant. Marsh, however, rejects the pardon. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/66, which appears in each of the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions.
