Set five horsemanship dressage engravings from William Cavendish 'New method and extraordinary invention to dress horses and work them according to nature." They depict William Cavendish (1592-1676), first Duke of Newcastle upon Tyne, on horseback at his various estates. The Duke was a leading commander in the English Civil War who, after the Royalist defeat, fled to the continent. During his exile Cavendish established a famous riding school in Antwerp. It was located in Rubens former home which Cavendish rented from Rubens widow. In 1658, while still in exile, Cavendish first published, in French, his influential book on horsemanship 'La Methode et Invention Nouvelle de Dresser les Chevaux'. After his return to England following the Restoration, English editions were issued in London. All engravings are designs of Flemish School artist Abraham van Diepenbeeck (1596-1675), a disciple of Rubens, and were first engraved by various 17th Century Flemish engravers whose names are inscribed on the plates as follows:
