Two lines of verse below title: To see them rattle, howl and tear, by Jove twould make a parson swear.
"A fox (left) is closely pursued by hounds who are followed by four riders, leaping the wall (right) of a formal garden: beds set in gravel, with box borders, some having bushes clipped into birds and circles. A fat parson (left) runs up in furious anger to meet the invasion. Behind him is the church, and near it an old gabled house, partly hidden by large trees. Next a roller (right) is a board: 'Stee[l] Traps Spring Guns set in this Garden'."--British Museum online catalogue.
