Sir Henry Saville (1549-1622), English scholar, translator of the Bible and mathematician. In 1619 he founded and endowed a chair in astronomy and a chair in geometry at Oxford, both bearing his name. The Savilian Professor of Astronomy and Savilian Professor of Geometry still exist today in Oxford as positions of high esteem. This stipple engraving is by Harding (artist) and R. Clamp (engraver). Published in 1796, with hand colouring after a portrait by Marcus Gheeraerts (Garret) the Younger.
