On the extreme left. one donkey lies on its back kicking the rider it has thrown; the donkey-boy kneels beside it holding the rein, and plying a cudgel. The next donkey, its head held by a boy, is kicking; a man (? groom) behind flogs it, another holds its rider's sunshade. The third donkey, with its rider holding a sunshade, stands beside it. The other two groups advance from r. to left. Three lively and coquettish ladies ride side by side, approaching with studied unconsciousness two hussar officers who lean against the railing. The animals are urged on by boys with vicious whips and cudgels. The last three (r.) are more demure and are escorted by grooms or attendant cavaliers, one of whom holds up his lady's parasol. A few spectators are strung out along the railing; an old sailor sits on the railing, smoking, facing the sea."--British Museum online catalogue.

Drawing on rarely examined diaries and journals, Down the Great Unknown is the first book to tell the full, true story.
