A facsimilie copy of his most influential work by Morgan Llwyd (1619-1659), being a powerful and multi-layered allegory in the form of a conversation between three birds - an eagle, a raven and a dove - which represent the State, the Established Church and the Puritans. First published in 1653, the facsimilie is taken from the Guild of Graduates's edition of the work.
