"Deliver us from Evil", from the "Lyra Germanica", 1860. 'In the present edition the work is carefully produced as a gift-book, in accordance with the prevailing taste for illustrated literature. The designs printed in the text, about 225 in number, comprise Bible landscapes, scriptural vignettes, a few subjects of allegorical character, emblematical marginalia, and tailpieces, all strictly in keeping with the hymns which they illustrate. The Engraving we have selected is taken from the well-known basso-relievo of Flaxman, "Deliver us from evil": it is produced by a new process, and is one of the first successful photographs on wood - it was printed and engraved on that material by Mr. Bolton, from Mr. Leighton's negative'. Plate from "Lyra Germanica: Hymns for the Sundays and Chief Festivals of the Christian Year". Translated from the German by Catherine Winkworth. Illustrated by John Leighton, F.S.A., and others. (Longman and Co.), published in "Illustrated London News", 1860.
