Following a lead that C. J. Grant had contributed to the New Sporting Magazine (1831-1870) I found a few contributions. Top is a Grant illustration to Animal Magnetism June 1, 1841 when the magazine was being published by R. Ackermann. E. Landells was the engraver. Probably more interesting was finding that George "Wildrake" Tattersal, sporting artist and author was also no mean caricaturist. Three samples from 1841 follow. The last is a print from 1841 by Henry Heath.
