The English Agricultural Society was founded in 1838. In 1840 it was granted its Royal Charter by Queen Victoria, and so became the Royal Agricultural Society of England. It organises the annual 'Royal Show' at the Society's headquarters at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. This fascinating pair of prints includes a depiction of the society's first show at Oxford, and features cattle, ploughs and other examples of the latest agricultural and harvesting technology.
