Two men are riding dandy horses on a country road
Pink went two hobbies straight to hire;
Then with their steeds they gallop'd on.
Along the road to Kensington;
And fair their journey might be seen.

Description

Two men are riding dandy horses on a country road.

The MARC record for this book attributes this series of illustrations to Isaac Robert Cruikshank, citing Gumuchian (the Parisian publisher?) as the only reference. Given that the same Gumuchian also mentions 1821 as the date of the first edition, whereas the book presented here bears 1819 as its publication date; given that the record describes these illustrations as wood engravings while we incline to believe they might well be etchings, we won’t be endorsing the Cruikshank attribution for the time being.
We welcome any comment that would offer reliable information about these illustrations and their creator.
