Summary

Print shows Louis XIV as the harlequin, with pegged leg, riding on the "hippogryphe" or jackass, leading a holy crusade. He wears a large biretta that also fits over the head of James II sitting behind him; they both wear armor. Hanging from the saddle is a shield bearing the monogram IHS of the Society of Jesus. In the foreground, Father Petre, confessor of James II, rides a lobster; he is holding James Francis, the infant son of James II, known as the Pretender, with a small windmill on top of his head. On the left, behind the main scene, ambassadors of the holy league ride on a snail and councillors and vicars ride on owls; on the right, monks drag cannon past a gallows. In the background, a ship, "Sinte Reynuyt", departs, and men pull down statues from church facades. Includes descriptive verse with key to numbered figures.
