Description:

Single sheet broadside. 370x275mm. Some tears and chipping to the edges and worming affecting the text but it is clearly legible and overall in good condition. It is illustrated by a woodcut of Jesus (looking rather like Charles I) holding an orb and with a crown of thorns floating above his head which is surrounded by a sunburst halo. A circular border around this image reads: "Fairer then the Children of Men PSALXLV". The final line of the text reads "wise. A Man, for his singular Beauty far exceeding all the Sons of Men". These points, together with the distance from Iconiam and the number of years (63) after the Crucifixion all conform to the 1725 edition located at the British Library under ESTC number T205815. There appears to be no earlier edition in English. It is scarce, copies being located at the NLS, Bodleian and UCLA, in addition to the BL copy.
