  • Notes: A full page lithograph from The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, 1879. This antique lithographic illustration shows two horses - "Isonomy" and "The Bear" - and their riders battling it out for prime placing in Goodwood's Cup Day race. A caption to the lower left of the image reads: ' "And the Favourite held tightly by the head reached the Bear opposite the Lawn of simply "lobbed in".' This image was designed by the artist John Sturgess, who it is presumed also completed the lithography. This artwork was printed for The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News; published on page 509 of the August 9th, 1879 edition. The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News was a popular publication through the 1870s and 1880s that targeted a niche market, with its articles and illustrations focusing on Sports and Theatre; its pages and beautiful artworks are now quite scarce and are not easily found. We are pleased to be able to offer a collection of the accomplished wood engravings and lithographs from this historical publication, such as this lithograph by J. Sturgess.
