    Description: “Seven Godly and constant Martyrs, suffering at one fire together in Smithfield.” Encircled by bundles of faggots, the seven martyrs, including at least one woman, stand back-to-back and chained to three stakes. Each of the martyrs is fully clothed and is identified as (from the top, clockwise): “B. Green,” "Whittle," "Went," "Isab," "Foster," "I. Warne," and "T. Brown.” A richly dressed man sits atop a horse at the right of the image and appears to be administering the execution. A group of observers consisting of both soldiers and civilians surrounds the pyre. Unlike earlier woodcut editions of this illustration, the names of the martyrs are included. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11222/42 and 11223/85, which appear in all four early English editions (1563, 1570, 1576, 1583). JPEG file (541 KB).

    Description: Surrounded by faggots, seven figures stand back to back and against three stakes. The central man is bound at the waist, and the man on his left extends his arm upward. As men on horseback direct the execution from either side, a worker prepares additional faggots and a crowd of soldiers observes. The blank spaces near the martyrs allow for the insertion of drop-in type into the woodblock, but this type was not employed. This woodcut appears in the first through fourth editions (1563, 1570, 1576, and 1583). Luborsky and Ingram 11222/42, 11223/85. JPEG file (1.11 MB).
