Abstract:
A later print designed and etched to look like the woodcut that appeared on the title-page of a pamphlet of the same title. The image shows "Iohn and Mary Champian" described within image as "Presbyterian" and "Anabaptist", respectively, at the moment when Mary, holding the severed head of their baby in her right hand, points at the rest of the body with the left. John (on the left) raises his hands at the horror. At Mary's feet is the knife lying in foreground. The mother allegedly killed the child rather than have it christened.
