Four classic English hunting scenes after John Nost Sartorius (1759-c.1828), an artist known for his horse portraits, engraved by Peltro William Tomkins (1759-1840) and James Neagle (1760?-1822). Each plate has lines of verse from 'The Chace' by William Somerville (1675-1742), a poet and keen sportsman. Thomas Bewick illustrated an edition of the poem in 1796. The set was first published in 1790 by John Harris and reissued by him in 1795, making the dates on plates II & IV unlikely. The BM dates Deeley's address in Berwick Street to 1809-1815.
