Original watercolour paintings by veterinarian Edward Mayhew. Many of the watercolours have been used to make woodcuts for prints in Mayhew’s publications ‘The Illustrated Horse Doctor’ (1860) and ‘The Illustrated Horse Management’ (1864) , however not all watercolours have counterparts in these books. Nor do all images from the books have corresponding watercolours in this collection. The collection consists mostly of scenic and anatomical paintings of horses but also features Donkeys and Dogs.

Please note that copies of these publications are available in the historical library collection.
