These whimsical hand-colored prints are by John Leech (1817-1864).  Leech originally was a medical student, though turned to full-time illustrating when his teachers became aware of his superb anatomical drawings and began commissioning him to do portraits.  Leech is best known for his contribution to Punch Magazine which published over 3000 of his drawings and 600 cartoons.

The prints shown here are from illustrations Leech did to accompany sporting stories, most focusing on equestrian themes.
