Artist's Scrapbook, containing appproximately 215 mounted pen and ink drawings, primarily of fox hunters, horses, hounds, foxes, and hunting scenes
n.p, ca. 1847-57. (FOX HUNTING) Folio. . Sewn into original brown wrappers (worn) . The artist, from internal evidence, seems to be Rev. H.L. Bennet--clearly an ardent and well-connected sportsman, as most of his sketches are portraits and caricatures of well-known hunting men (and women) of the day, many of whom are identified. These include a portrait of Lord Jersey, who Nimrod called "perhaps the most elegant rider for hounds the world has ever seen", and many others. The drawings are skilfully executed, and are often amusing. A unique production of one of the golden ages of British sport. Including : Examples of 2 pages, 7 images: Mrs. Rowley's Groom on his Compact Mare, Rush Esq, Farthgghoc, Col. Joddsch (?), Lord Anson's steward M-- Wyatt. J.H. Jr, T.T.D. Another: 2 pages; Rev. G.
