1801, which was publilhed by Fores. At this and a later period fome of 
his defigns were engraved by Rowlandfon, who always transferred his 
own ftyle to the drawings he copied. A remarkable inftance of this is 
furnifhed by a print of a party of anglers of both fexes in a punt, entitled  
"Anglers of 1811 " (the year of Bunbury's death). But for the name, 
" H. Bunbury, del.," very diftinctly infcribed upon it, we ihould take this

engraved fome copies of Bunbury's prints on horfernanthip for Acker-

feldom meddled with it. Like Collet, he preferred fcenes of focial life, 
and humorous incidents of contemporary manners, falhionable or

 fhown in prints publifhed in 1772, and feveral droll feries of fuch fubjeets 
appeared at different times, between I781 and 1791, one of which was 
 long famous under the title of " Geoffrey Gambadds Horfemanlhip."
