The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts

The engraved bookplate for the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG) features the organization's seal—the image of a preacher holding a Bible as he approaches a foreign shore by ship. The SPG was a missionary organization chartered by King William III in 1701 with the goal of spreading literacy and Christianity abroad.
