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: After cutting Damlip down from a gallows, a guard disembowels him. Damlip lies propped, still living, against the gallows, and a fire burns nearby, ready to consume his entrails. The recently severed noose hangs from Damlip's neck. An official on horseback supervises the execution, and a crowd of soldiers observes. Damlip's martyrdom occurs at Calais.
