Engraving. Plate: 125 x 185mm, (5 x 7¼"). Small margins. Cut on left to plate.
An scene depciting King John's meeting with the rebel barons at Runnymede on 15th June 1215 and the signing of the Magna Carta. Though the charter of 1215 failed to resolve the differences between the barons and the King it is seen as the basis of modern British law and civil liberties.
