"A fat 'cit' on an ill-bred horse leans back in the saddle with legs thrust forward; the angle of his seat is shown by a dotted half-circle above his head on which 90 degrees are marked, above his point of contact with the horse. An absurd dog barks at the horse's heels. In the background two riders are being flung from their horses. Behind them is St. Paul's and adjacent houses. On the right is a windmill. Illustration to an account of a grotesque City subscription hunt, whose rule is never to go out of sight of St. Paul's."--British Museum catalogue.
