Catalogue Note

The Dun Cow is a response to attacks on Dr Samuel Parr, a friend of Landor, in Guy’s Porridge Potby Robert Eyres Landor (see lot 127). Authorship of The Dun Cow is attributed to Landor in Bibliotheca Parriana. John Bartlam (1771-1823) was Parr's pupil who later became his companion and amanuensis.
