Shepherds Cottage, Cashiobury.
Printed by W. Clerk, 202 High Holborn. [n.d., c.1830].
Two lithographs on seperate sheets, joined along top edge, very scarce pair. Both laid on India paper. Sheet size: 345 x 500mm (13½ x 19½") each. Light foxing.
Two separate lithographs. The first is a view of a large shepherd's cottage in Cassiobury, Hertfordshire, with the shepherd and his dog walking along a path to the left. Woodland can be seen behind the house. The second is Lady Harriet Countess of Essex's sketch of Cassiobury before it was rebuilt, with an explanation by Lord Essex, and facsimile signature below. The naive sketch is said to be an exact representation of the original drawing by Lady Essex, of whom Lord Essex claimed had 'no pretentions to drawing'.
