The Sealing of the Manga Carta.

The 800th anniversary celebrations of the signing of the Manga Carta have begun. Exhibitions of events surrounding the historical document are planned, and there is also a call for 15 June 2015 to be a public holiday.

Here’s a recently unearthed, and very rare print of a tableau marking the occasion.
