"Pointer and Setter" a fascinating study of the dogs which was originally engraved by Thomas Landseer for :Annals of Sporting"

One of the greatest animal painters of all time, Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802-1873) was particularly renowned for his dogs, which often seem to have human qualities. He was Queen Victoria's favorite artist, and she commissioned him to to paint many portraits of her, and her husband Prince Albert's dogs. Fabulously successful in his own lifetime and adored by the public, Landseer profited more from selling the rights to his engravings than he did from payment for the paintings on which they were based.
This steel engraving 'Friends' comes from The Works of Sir Edwin Landseer: Illustrated by Forty-Four Steel Engravings and About Two Hundred Woodcuts from Sketches in the Collection of her Majesty the Queen and Other Sources: With a History of his Art-Life by W. Cosmo Monkhouse, published by George Virtue, London, shortly after Landseer's death.

This original image is printed on very heavy stock and measures 7 1/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches. The plate as a whole which includes title etc. measures approximately 10 inches by 14 inches. In great condition - just some slight discoloration on the extreme edges and a little light foxing on the border.
