Henry Charles Lea (1825-1909)


Henry was an interesting chap. You can wiki him but in brief, he was a Philly lad, his father of Quaker descent and a naturalist, his mothers family was in the publishing business. He had a fascinating education from some genius guy who tutored he and his brother. He went into the publishing business and then at 22, he had a nervous breakdown, recovered, focused his interest on the study of church history of the Middle Ages and occult sciences. Later, he married his cousin and was a very productive member of society. A bit of an anarchist and rabble rouser really. Completed 2015. AVAILABLE through the artist.
