Ellicott, D.D.; approx. 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" size, on the original heavy paper 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" sheet; Charles John Ellicott (1819-1905) British Lord Bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, "...During his episcopate Ellicott engaged in a wide variety of academic and literary pursuits. Foremost among them, he believed, was his contribution to revision of the Bible. He termed it ‘the greatest spiritual movement that has taken place since the Reformation'...Despite his scholarly work and other commitments in convocation and in the House of Lords, Ellicott did not neglect his diocese...a tall man with a good sense of humour. All who knew him were struck by his simplicity of life and abstemious behaviour-he became a teetotaller to encourage those with drink problems (Bristol Times, 17 Oct 1905). He was remembered as an excellent preacher and a warm outgoing person, with a genuine interest in people. ..."
