Coaching Scenes

Talk about ‘Ephemera Lost’ (nearly!)! My wife was passing a skip in 2008 just as it started to rain. Her eyes were drawn to a red covered book on the top which she picked up and seeing what it was put it under cover and brought it home. As a collector of coaching scenes I was delighted to find it was a copy of Down the Road by Birch Reynardson published in 1875 with 12 wonderful chromo plates.

The artwork is by H Alken, chromolithograph by Hanhart.

The images I have used here are courtesy of the Library of Congress, USA (it saves me trying to scan my copy and potentially damage the spine).
