Several of these and other portraits were engraved for the booksellers as frontispieces to books; Glover also engraved numerous title-pages. A broadside engraved by him gives the portraits and biographies of William Evans, the giant porter, Jeffery Hudson, the dwarf, and Thomas Parr, the very old man. Some of Glover's portraits, such as those of Sir Thomas Urquhart and Innocent Nath. Witt, an idiot, were engraved from the life. His earliest works bear the address of William Peake, for whom most of the early English engravers worked. Glover's own portrait was engraved by R. Grave, jun., from a drawing once in William Oldys's possession.
