John Everard, no less

John Everard – one of the major translators of the seventeenth century and a sponge for all sorts of influences. Or was he a bit of a sham, relying on the work of others too much…?

 

The image itself is purported to be by Thomas Cross – better known for writing his theological treatises.

All this suggests that the influence of Everard was wide-ranging and profound. The British Museum has an isolated frontispiece with the same image. I have informed them of its identical nature to the British Library text.
