Henry William Bunbury was one of the most beloved English humorists of his day. By turning his back on controversial political caricature, Bunbury made a name for himself as a subtle and ingenious social satirist. In this vein he mocked many of the fashions and follies of the age depicting scenes of university life and, in the present work, the antics of horsemen. Lowndes calls this work a "lively and entertaining jeu d'esprit of the pencil and pen." Lowndes II, p.860 (attributing the text to Bunbury). Bookseller Inventory #
