Chromolithograph print of jockeys on their mounts in a race, circa mid 19th century, 13" by 19" (15" by 21" in modern day dark frame), signed in the image by the noted British Vanity Fair magazine caricature and sporting artist LIBERIO PROSPERI (1854-1928), who signed as "Lib". The print is framed without mat and has some condition issues, including two vertical folding creases, and a damage area at lower center, below the horse's leg (see close up of that). Despite the condition this is an interesting vintage image of an age long gone. Prosperi was part of the famous group of artists who worked for Vanity Fair between about 1875 and 1903; this group included artists who signed with such names as "Ape" and "Spy".
