A Russian horse-drawn plough, published in Atkinson's 'A Picturesque Representation of the Manners, Customs, and Amusements of the Russians'. According to the text the Russian plough is primitive and its effect 'in ploughing is very superficial... [but] enough, however, to answer all the Russian's purposes'. The author notes the recent introduction of the english plough by the nobility, although the peasants still prefer their own. Atkinson accompanied his uncle, James Walker. to St Petersburg when Walker was appointed engraver to Catherine the Great. On his return he and his uncle published this work, which contained 100 plates.
