This image of a horse named “Ronald” features as the front cover illustration of the Sept 17th 1880 issue, of the periodical “Hand and Heart”. It is somewhat rare and now difficult to find. We are fortunate to have a good clear copy in our collection. The engraving for the image was in this case done by Walmsley & Son. It is accompanied by a short poem which reads: “Up hill, do not press me; Down hill, do not hurry me; On the plain do not spare me; In the stable don’t forget me.” Currently available in both A4 and A3 sizing options.
