In 1857 Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896) agreed to provide the Dalziel Brothers engravers with a series of drawings to illustrate “The Parables of Our Lord,” a book whose moral appeal was to be supported by the beauty of its illustrations. The resulting 20 prints first appeared in the periodicals “Good Words,” “Once a Week,” and “The Cornhill Magazine” during 1862–63, and the Dalziels considered the series, published together in 1864, to be amongst their finest work. Millais created numerous drafts of each image and considered the process of illustrating the “Parables” equal to the compositional complexities of executing a painting.

Dalziel & Co. were a firm of engravers founded in 1839. In 1863 they approached various artists to produce designs for an illustrated Bible. However, the Dalziels were unable to get their project published by George Routledge & Sons until 1881 when it was compiled as a “Gallery” aimed at the higher end of the market.

In 1894 Dalziels’ Bible Gallery was republished by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge in a cheaper format as “Art Pictures from the Old Testament and Our Lord’s Parables.” This version included 14 new designs by Simeon Solomon (British 1840-1905).
