His speed was not always beneficial: in one case he took a leg in 2½ minutes, but took the patients testicles as well; in another he cut off his assistant's finger and slashed an observer's coat, after which the patient and assistant died of gangrene and the observer died of a heart attack.

Published Jan.y 1 1811, by Mr. Turner, Queen Ann Street West
Etching and mezzotint, with large margins, platemark 210 x 290mm (8¼ x 11½"). Stamp of art dealer C.W. Dowdeswell verso.
Boys playing around a trough, with a row of houses in background- 'the scene is evidently in Hyde Park' (Rawlinson). Plate from J.M.W.'s 'Liber Studiorum', which was published between 1807 and 1819. By this time Turner's position of the pre-eminent British landscape painter of his day was assured, but with this series it was the French artist Claude Lorraine whom Turner was emulating. Claude's 'Libro di Verita', a book of drawings sold to the Duke of Devonshire in the eighteenth century, had been engraved by Richard Earlom around thirty years earlier to much acclaim, and in many ways Turner was publishing his work in a format which invited direct comparison with that of Claude.

Procris and Cephalus.
Drawn & Etched by J.M.W. Turner Esq.r R.A.P.P. Engraved by G. Clint.
London, Published Feb.y 14 1812 by J.M.W. Turner, Queen Ann Street West.
Mezzotint with etching. Plate: 210 x 290mm (8¼ x 11½'') with large margins.
A classical scene showing Cephalus cardling the dying Procris in a woodland. From Turner's 'Liber Studiorum'. The Liber Studiorum was published in several parts between 1807 and 1819, by which time Turner's position as the pre-eminent British landscape painter of his day was assured. In this series, exceptional amongst Turner prints for the extent of the artist's involvement (he both etched and published this plate, leaving only the mezzotinting to his namesake Charles Turner), he sought to emulate the 17th century French artist Claude Lorraine. Claude's 'Libro di Verita', a book of drawings sold to the Duke of Devonshire, had been engraved by Richard Earlom to much acclaim some thirty years earlier.
