Complete volume of this masterpiece of equine anatomical exploration by George Stubbs [1724 - 1806]. It takes the form of what are effectively two sets of etchings combined. The first part, of four plates, deals exclusively with the skeletal structure of the horse and comprises three finished etchings labelled Tabs. I, II and III, and one key plate corresponding to Tab I. The second part explores the muscles, fascias, ligaments, nerves, veins, glands and cartilage. This consists of 15 etchings, Tabs. I - XV, nos. I - V each with corresponding separate key plates. This volume is compiled from two separate first editions. The binding and letterpress sheets, along with four plates, come from a copy ex-Royal Veterinary College. The plates as follows; Tabs I (Lennox-Boyd 169), III (173), IV (175) and the final plate XV (188). The remainder of the plates come from a private collection in the West Country. These etchings are fine impressions on contemporary laid paper, on which only the earliest copies were printed. They represent gloriously precise, detailed and accurate anatomical observations which set the standard in veterinary science for a century. They certainly possess a 'fine exactness and austere beauty' that 'give them a timeless beauty' (Ray). Stubbs says in his introduction 'To The Reader': 'all the figures in it are drawn from nature, for which purpose I dissected a great number of horses'. 42 original sketches from Stubbs's dissections between 1756 and 1759 while he was at Horkstow in Lincolnshire survive in the library of the Royal Academy. These form the basis of this great work, an undertaking too demanding it seems for some of the premier engravers of the time, such as Charles Grignion, who declined Stubbs's approaches. The task took up the following six years, all the while the artist refining his rather rudimentary engraving technique. The impact of the publication of the work was immediate and considerable, not only in scientific terms, but in an age of Enlightenment when the aesthetic ideal was closely connected with observation of the natural world, the artistic community derived great benefit also. Freshly appreciated and re-discovered in the 20th century, George Stubbs is now widely considered to be the pre-eminent animal painter of the 18th century. Throughout his life Stubbs displayed an inquisitive scientific temperament, and he had a life-long interest in deconstructing anatomy, one of his earliest works including a set of illustrations for a textbook on midwifery which was published in 1751.

A portrait of the racehorse Marske by George Stubbs. Marske was sire of the hugely successful horse Eclipse, and was given to the Duke of Cumberland in exchange for a chestnut Arabian. Following the Duke's death he was bought by William Wildman and put to stud.

Mask is shown standing in a countryside scene by lake.

Book: D/W. Quarto. pp. 240. Illustrated colour wrappers. Profusely illustrated in both colour and monochrome throughout.

This volume features gorgeous colour reproductions of paintings that highlight the painter's genius for combining realism and lyricism. It includes numerous drawings and prints - among them the exceptional studies for his 'The Anatomy of the Horse' series. Informative essays discuss Stubbs' superb aesthetic sensibility, his far-reaching scientific studies, and his place in the pantheon of eighteenth-century European painters.

His success brought him to the attention of one of George Stubbs's most important patrons, Richard, 1st Earl Grosvenor, a celebrated breeder and racehorse owner, who promptly purchased Sweet William. The horse remained in Lord Grosvenor's ownership thereafter. The original portrait was one of sixteen paintings which Stubbs executed for the Turf Gallery project.
