From Howitt's A New Work of Animals: Principally Designed from The Fables of Aesop, Gay, and Phaedrus.
Samuel Howitt (1756 - 1822) was an English painter, illustrator and etcher of animals, hunting, horse-racing and landscape scenes. He was the brother-in-law of Thomas Rowlandson. From around 1791, Howitt produced sporting prints, a few of which he published himself, but mostly he worked for other publishers. He was also active from 1801-1805 as a publisher of caricatures, many of which he etched himself under the pseudonym of Giles Grinagain.
Condition: Good impression with full margins. Minor foxing and time toning to edges of the sheet.
