Master Printer Juan Pascoe has found a copy of his great grandfather’s own account of religion in Mexico and his missionary work there, and as a tribute to him Juan has produced a nicely illustrated and handsomely printed edition of that article, which appeared in Spurgeon’s famous periodical, The Sword and the Trowel. The illustrations are two cuts of 19th-century presses, three tipped-in photographs (one of James, another of James’ mother-in-law, and the third of one of James’ daughters), and a title-page cut reproduced from => the only illustration ascribed to James himself in his long-running periodical.
