A Country Inn Yard at the Time of an Election.
[London: Robert Sayer, 1768.]
Engraving with very large margins; 175 x 280mm (7 x 11").
A coach getting ready to leave an inn yard, an election riot in the background. Soon after the death of William Hogarth in 1764, his widow Jane gave the London publisher Robert Sayer permission to publish a collection of her husband's work. Although engraved in a smaller format, Sayer's versions retain all the detail of the original plates.
