Antique print of Stilton, a Hunter. The Property of Colonel Loyd Lindsay V.C.M. P.  A winner of the Punchestown (Ireland) Steeplechase. From a painting by Sheldon Williams Esquire.

Original colour-printed lithograph by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, after an 1874 oil painting by Sheldon Williams 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.

This original lithograph is in fine condition. The 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).
