Image for the Oxford Almanack of 1796.
The original watercolour drawing is deposited by the Delegates of the Press in the Ashmolean Museum. There is a pencil and wash drawing of the same subject with notes for colour on it in the Bodleian Library. It is close to the engraving except that there is no woman with a dog and the man wears a coat, not a gown. The architecture in this almanack was used by Rowlandson as the background of drawings which are in the possesion of the Junior Common Room, Worcester College, and the Ashmolean Museum.
