Literature

Abbey, Travel 447; Schwerdt I:149

Catalogue Note

A FINE COPY OF D'OYLY'S BEST SPORTING WORKS, with (presumably) early Anglo-Indian provenance. All twenty-four plates called for by Schwerdt are present, although the plates from the two series are mixed together. The game depicted includes tiger, leopard, bear, rhinoceros, deer, hare, quail, and duck. In several plates, the big cats in particular seem to be getting the better of the hunters.
