Book covers

I should add that Stephen Wilson's book is the first text on Edwards that I have read that is adorned with a semi-clad woman whipping a bearded older gentleman.

SW says 'The cover illustration is Urs Graf's rendition of the common renaissance theme of Aristotle's insufficient recognition of the strength of the passions, 'Aristoteles von der schönen Phyllis geritten' (1521).

Definitely a first for JE studies.
