Added paper attached with archival tape from verso to right margin due to close trimming. Typical light signs of wear associated with age.

In the foreground, John the Evangelist, holding a pen and writing on a scroll; to the left, an eagle perched on a rock; above, an angel, holding a banner and a scroll; in the distance, coastline and sea. Inscribed on St John's scroll: "And I saw another Angel flie in the midst of heaven, having the Everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the Earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Rev. 14. 6.". Michael Burghers (c.1647/1648-1727) was a Dutch illustrator and artist of the 17th century, who spent most of his career in England.
