A satire in defence of episcopacy. A flourishing tree at the foot of which is a cartouche lettered with the title; the trunk is lettered "Governed by Episcopacy 1541 years", and round the trunk of which is wound a band reading "Jesus Christ/Bishop of our Soules ..."; the main branches are also labelled with the names of places where episcopacy flourished and with the names of apostles, evangelists and saints. Two smaller trees grow up from the roots on either side of the main tree: that on the left lettered "Presbytery" and with a band lettered "Began 1541" and that on the right lettered "Independency" with a band lettered "began 1647". A man on either side of the main tree climbs a ladder, balance one foot on the small tree and reaches up to cut off branches from the main tree. Behind them in the background on each side men plant young trees labelled, "New, but not True Plants." and "These hold neither Root nor Order." British Museum states: This print is in Cave's "Antiquitates Apostolicae," original edition, 1675.
