  • Notes: A full page wood engraved artwork from The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, 1883. This antique engraving shows players on their horses at Goodwood engaging in 'Polo - Fast Play!'. This artwork was designed by John Sturgess, the artist, and engraved onto wood by John Swain. Published on page 485 of the July 21st, 1883 edition of The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News. This 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 illustrations 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 one by Sturgess and Swain.
