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 fourth (plate 4) sings the praises of favourite hounds – Nimble, Hawk’s Eye, Plunge and the rest – describing their special aptitudes.
