London / Published by T. Helme, at his Picture Frame Manufactory, 15, Tabernacle Square, Old Street Road May 1833.
Aquatint with hand-colouring, platemark 460 x 550mm (18 x 21½"). Very large margins. Paper watermarked 'J Whatman Turkey Mill 1833'. Creasing; damage inside upper platemark.
Final plate from a set of four coursing prints, showing the return from the hunt with a servant carrying a dead rabbit. Presumably after animal and sporting painter John Nost Sartorius (1759-1829), whose popularity in the field was second only to that of his contemporary George Stubbs, but given here as 'S.N. Sartorius'.
