Frontispiece to Gospel Treasures, 1657 republication.

The text which appears beneath this image was written by Matthew Barker, born in Northamptonshire in 1619, an Independent minister and Parliamentarian. He had been a schoolmaster in Banbury before moving to London to become a preacher.

But the image itself is purported to have been drawn by Thomas Cross – better known for writing his theological treatises.
