Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Since Lim combines respect and admiration for Baxter with critical acumen, some of the nicest sections of the book show Baxter sparring with powerful opponents like John Owen or William Bagshaw. There are several exuisite and keenly felt articulations of Baxter's motivations as well...this is a rewarding and insightful book that manages to situate Baxter in a vivid and convincing way.'
Carrie A. Hintz, Renaissance Quarterly, 2005.
