One of six plates, originally published in 1844. These photogravures were issued by J. McCormack, 147 Strand. The set reveals as much about the social aspects of the hunt as about the chase itself. Each plate bears a couple of verses complementing the scene depicted.
The second (plate 2) acclaims the steeds and the pack:
“And for hounds our opinions with thousands we’ll back
That all England throughout can’t produce such a pack”.
