'The Return Home (Carfax Portfolio)', Wood Engraving, 1830 (made) / 1904 (published).

The Carfax Portfolio of 11 proofs published in 1904.

This portfolio was printed in an edition limited to thirty copies and comprises:
-Two copper engravings: The Bride and The Sheep of his Pasture.
-Seven wood engravings: The Ploughman, The Brook, The Chamber Idyll, The Cyder Feast, The Lady and the Rooks, The Return Home, and The Baccante.    
-Two lithographs: The Flood and Ideal Pastoral Life.                                                                               

The two lithographs included in the set were the remainder of 35 impressions printed under the artist's supervision in 1829. It is unlikely that more than a few copies exist outside of museum collections. Very scarce.

Reference: Lister 2, 6c, 7c, 8c, 9b, 10, 11, 12c, 13c, 14b, 15b.
