Booklet cover image of Matt Talbot

The initial cover of this 1972 booklet by Mary Purcell includes the head of Matt from a larger painting of him (after his death) by Mother Margaret Mary Nealis, R.S.C.J (1876 – 1957). (Later booklet printings have a different cover.)

Mary Purcell is a renown biographer of Matt who also published Matt Talbot and His Times (1977, American edition by Franciscan Herald Press) and Remembering Matt Talbot (1990, Second Edition, Veritas Publications)
