Set of 4 Antique Hand Coloured Hunting Prints by H Alken

  • Set of 4 engravings titled The First Steeple Chase On Record, drawn by H. Alken, engraved by J. Harris and published by Ben Brooks 1st March 1839 at his Eclipse Sporting Gallery, 48 High street, Oxford.

    The four numbered plates are all titled and annotated:

    Plate 1. Ipswich, the watering place behind the barracks

    Plate 2. The large field near Biles's corner

    Plate 3. The last field near Nacton Heath

    Plate 4. Nacton Church & Village

    All have been professionally mounted and re-framed.

    The pictures are in a good antique condition with some foxing and marks commensurate with age but this simply adds to the character and history of these beautiful pictures.  The colour in these aquatints is still strong and bright.

    These would make a wonderful collectors piece or gift.
