More About this Item


Description: (HUNTING.) Crealock, Henry Hope. Among the Red Deer, Sketches from Nature in the Forest. 80 albumen photograph reproductions of Crealock drawings with printed numbered captions mounted on 28 card sheets, additional image on lithographed title-page. Folio, original pebbled cloth, gilt lettered "Among the Red Dear" [sic] on upper cover, faded, a bit worn, rebacked and re-cornered in modern brown morocco, endpapers renewed; plates generally clean, light surface soiling and a few with light foxing toward the rear, small chip to lower corner of title-page. London: George Hogarth Turner, circa 1870
Notes: Henry Hope Crealock left his mark as a British soldier, artist and author during the Victorian empire. His many military accomplishments include participation in the Second Opium War and the Anglo–Zulu War of 1879. He retired from service in 1884 having earned the rank of Lieutenant General. During his life and travels he was continually accompanied by his sketchbook. His drawings reproduced here illustrate an expediton in pursuit of prize stags throughout the Scottish highlands together with the chief of the Clan Cameron Lochiel, several companions, and their essential dogs. This visual story suggests they undoubtedly had an eventful and successful hunt.
