London, Ackermann & Co., 1 February 1836.

James Pollard's scarce series of prints commemorating the exceptionally severe snow of December 1836. The Spectator reported that 'snow continued to fall without intermission' from Friday to Monday night when 'it had spread over the greater part of the country in all directions'. The plates, which portray marooned coaches in a huge depth of snow, shivering humans and equally unhappy horses, are entitled: 'The Liverpool Mail in a Snow-Drift' – 'The Davenport Mail, assisted by Six Fresh Post-Horses, crossing the Downs near Amesbury' – 'The Birmingham Mail Fast in the Snow' – 'The Louth Mail Stopt by the Snow'.

Landscape folio (sheets 31.5 x 45.4 cm). 4 lithographic plates, coloured by a contemporary hand and heightened with gum arabic, by G.B. Campion after Pollard. Original printed wrappers, front wrapper with title and imprint within white on black woodcut border, back wrapper with publisher's catalogue (this latter reinforced on fold, the whole recently cleaned and restored). Contained in a modern red three-quarter morocco portfolio over earlier red cloth, upper cover gilt-stamped with title and date (cloth stained).

Bobins IV, 1406; Mellon/Snelgrove 58; Siltzer, p.222.
