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 third (plate 3) introduces individual riders, for instance: “Dick Thickset came mounted upon a fine black

A better fleet gelding ne’er hunter did back”.
