A three-column letterpress broadsheet describing the life, trial, and execution of King Charles I of England. The image (printed separately) shows the moment of execution itself, in front of the Banqueting Hall, at Whitehall. The image is closely related to one on a broadside in the British Museum, though the MFA’s version show no angelic intercession.
