A young thin Cambridge student in hunting dress riding rapidly across a heath holding out a whip in front of his horse's nose. A lurcher-type dog runs alongside. Racing interest. After Henry William Bunbury (1750 - 1811). From an album of caricatures published by Mary Darly dated January 1776. It seems that her husband Matthew made the plates.
