A setter lying in a field, having scared up birds for two men to catch in a net. An early example: the BM has a scratched-letter proof (1877,0811.675) with the image similar to this example; a second print they describe as a 'published impression' (1917,1208.3215) has the dog reworked with a fluffier and more dappled coat.
