[Scene at a racing meeting.]
Etching and aquatint, proof before letters, sheet 180 x 270mm. 7 x 10¾". Crease to lower left-hand corner.
Several figures, horses and dogs, some men drinking in a tent; a carriage, packed grandstands and the horse race in the background. Scarce, probably from a series of scenes at the races similar to series of aquatints first published by Charles Turner in October 1807, and by Richards, 344 Strand, London, in June 1814.
See Whitman: 906/907/908, 'Sketch from a Race Ground' etc. Siltzer: undescribed.
