"How Joan the Maid suffered Martyrdom at

the Stake in the Market-Place of Rouen" (1914)


The Christmas Edition of The Illustrated London News


Illustration by Kay Nielsen


When first published in the Christmas Edition of The Illustrated London News, this image was associated with the

following text:


I ever hoped for some miracle, even as her Saints had promised. But it was their will

that she should be made perfect through suffering, and being set free through the gate

of fire, should win her victory over unfaith and mortal fear. Wherefore I stood afar

off at the end, seeing nothing of what befell; yet I clearly heard, as did all men there,

the last word of her sweet voice, and the cry of 'Jhesus!'

approach typical of prestige illustrated publications produced in the early decades of the 20th Century. Each card is

hand-finished, with the image presented on Ivory card stock with an accompanying envelope. On the rear of each

card we also present some information about Kay Nielsen and this wonderful illustration. We have left the interior

of the cards blank so that you may write your own personal message.
