Etching, 250 x 345mm. 9¾ x 13½".
A scene outside 'The Moon' country coaching inn; a fat man attempts to mount a horse assisted by a groom, as a thin rider emerges on a pony from left; a couple laugh at the scene below from an upper window. Racing interest. From an album of caricatures published by Mary Darly dated January 1776. It seems that her husband Matthew made the plates.
