The title page provides a provocative series of images, each relating to stories of Biblical and other martyrdom.

First published in 1563 and more commonly known as Foxe's Book of Martyrs, the three volumes amount to 2,300 pages of over 3 million words and numerous engravings. The 1632 edition adds a chronology and a topical outline as well as a continuation of foreign martyrs.
