[Note 10, Chapter Two, in print version]

According to Robert Collinson, The Story of Street Literature: Foreruner of the Popular Press (ABC-Clio: Santa Barbara-Oxford, 1973), p. 116, The New Pictorial Bible "included two small and indifferently printed woodcuts on each page, below each of which it gave the Biblical reference, accompanied by the actual text." It devoted six woodcuts to the Creation and another twenty-three to the remainder of the Old Testament, and among these last were several events conventionally read as types: Moses striking the rock, Abraham and Isaac, Joseph cast into the pit, Samson pulling down the temple, and David killing Goliath.
