    In Memory of ye Deliverance from Popery & Slavery by King William III in MDCLXXXVIII
Anonymous, 1688
Satire on the defeat of Catholicism in England by William III; William, as a Roman soldier, prevents the Pope from stabbing the shackled figure of Albion with a sword. She sits on a wheel resting on a gibbet; at her feet lie a sword, a dead child, fetters, a chalice, a birch and a scourge; to the left, the seven-headed beast of Rome lies on its back attacked by an angel with a sword. Figures of Fame, Valour, Justice, Plenty, Peace and Hope identified by their emblems are seated in the clouds.Etching and engraving
