The invasion, or, Perkins triumph…

The invasion, or, Perkins triumph

An engraving, in which a coach marked “Perkin” carries the Pretender, who is holding a mask and leaning out of the window as he cheers his adherents. The King of France is coachman; the Pope is postilion. A monk with the banner “Inquisition” is a running footman; the Devil and two monks hang on behind as footmen. A band of Scotsmen carry a banner “Slavery”. The coach has driven over a clergyman, a lawyer with “Magna Carta”, and the figure of Britannia who has dropped her purse and papers inscribed with representations of property — Leases, Bank, Exchequer, South Sea, India, and Mortgage. In the background, a monk oversees the burning of a martyr as a party of monks kneel before a cross. Several bodies hang from a triangular-shaped gallows. The setting is a town square formed by York Minster, St. James’s Palace, and the Admiralty Building, Westminster.

  • Title: The invasion, or, Perkins triumph : a Protestant print inscribed to all true lovers of their religion & liberty / C. Mosley invt. et sculpt.
