THE WILTSHIRE GREAT COURSING MEETING HELD AT AMESBURY, 16th - 20th MARCH 1847, with STONEHENGE BEYOND.

1849]. Engraved by G. T. Payne, image: 18 5/8 x 36 3/8 inches; sheet: 25 1/2 x 40 1/4 inches. Backed on board.

A grand group portrait of a coursing party with Stonehenge in the background. Proof before titles.

A panoramic view of a gathering of British sportsmen in the rolling hills near Stonehenge at a specific event in 1847, which epitomises a significant aspect of British cultural life. The vast outdoors, the handsome and well-cared for dogs and horses and the hardy sportsmen form a unique ensemble, here beautifully depicted by William Barraud, perhaps the best animal artist of the period.
