Print: Baxter - CL 171 - This was published in Baxter’s rare book, Baxter's Gems of the Great Exhibition and also issued separately. The later three prints in this series were not issued (and the book completed) until three years after the exhibition had closed which is why the book and these later prints are rarer than the earlier prints in the series

Courtney Lewis writes “The print represents the bronze statue, by Kiss, of an "Amazon on horseback spearing a tiger, “it stood in the centre of the Foreign Nave and was on a colossal scale, and afterwards went to the Royal Museum in Berlin.” From my own (basic) research I feel this is actually a lion rather than a tiger.

It was produced from a plate and four blocks. It was probably first published with the book, and was afterwards (when sold separately) sold at 3s.
