Description: Fine impression on brownish laid paper, including the extensive letterpress text below the platemark (the sheet about 590 x 450 mm.); paper discoloration, edge tears and handling creases, but basically in good shape. The work is a cartoon on the flight of James II to France and his arrival there on Epiphany (Jan. 6, 1689). James II, in clothing decorated with scallop shells, carries a banner saying All Alone Against All. In the middle, the Jesuit Edward Petre carries a papal crown under his coat, and in the rear, the Dauphin dismounts from a bucking horse-drawn sleigh.
