The British Museum offers the following description of this print: “Horse with a saddle on its back in profile to left; bahind it, a man tying a parcel to a pack-horse, which is laden with baskets, a parasol and a turkey; dog to left; mountains in the distance to left” (https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/P_1851-0503-26).
Condition: a strong and well-printed (near faultless) impression. Beyond a spot of thinness on the lower margin, the sheet is in near pristine condition.
