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.

Finally (plate 6), “Sly Reynard’s brought home while the horns sound a call

And now you’re all welcome to Bachelor’s Hall… Come on then do honour to this jovial place

And enjoy the sweet pleasures that spring from the chase”.
