Victorian Worthies, introduced by Ian Hislop, collects the very best caricatures of the leading church figures of Victorian Britain from the pages of the original Vanity Fair magazine. The brilliant colour cartoons by 'Ape' and 'Spy' and accompanying vignette by 'Jehu Junior' (editor Thomas Gibson Bowles) are here reproduced, with a brief modern-day biography by priest Malcolm Johnson. Includes portraits of William Gladstone, Samuel Wilberforce, Alfred Lord Tennyson, John Ruskin, Anthony Trollope, John Henry Newman, Benjamin Disraeli, Queen Victoria, William Spooner, Robert Baden-Powell, Winston Churchill, Edward VII, Cosmo Lang and G K Chesterton.

Malcolm Johnson, Ian Hislop, Revd Richard Coles

Malcolm Johnson is a retired Church of England priest, previously rector of St Botolph Aldgate, Master of the Royal Foundation of St. Katharine and chaplain to the Lord Mayor of London.

'A delightful tour of the eccentric, Anglican world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.' - Ian Hislop, Private Eye 'Malcolm Johnson has skilfully recovered these caricaturists from the magazine rack of history.' - Revd Richard Coles 'A Christmas treat awaits anyone investing in this splendid anthology of Victorian profiles assembled by Malcolm Johnson.' - Church Times
