Arab Pony Charger of General Sir Hope Grant, G.C.B. Cassell c1874.

by Lutyens, Charles

Antique print of a fine cavalry horse from the Indian Mutiny of 1859 and Chinese Campaign of 1860. The Arab Pony Charger of General Sir Hope Grant, G.C.B.

Original colour-printed lithograph by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, after an 1847 oil painting by Charles H. Lutyens (1829-1915), for Samuel Sidney’s “The Book of the Horse” printed by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co of London, Paris and New York circa 1874.

At the end of the nineteenth century, the quality of superb chromolithographic illustrations for publication was exceptional. Many of the colour-printed lithographs for Cassells Book of the Horse were finished with hand-colour and highlighting. They are some of the finest illustrations that have ever been printed of horses.

Image measures approximately 17 x 22cm (6 ¾ x 8 ¾ inches). Page size is 21 x 27cm (8 ¼ x 10 5/8 inches). There are two fine extremity tears at the left - both reinforced by conservation repair tape. They would not intrude when framed. Otherwise this antique print is in fine condition.
