    This panoramic view of The Derby is taken from the top of Tattenham hill. The runners docked tails would indicate that it can be dated to the 1820's or earlier, although it would be difficult, with any certainty, to link it to a specific Derby.

    Special Notice

    No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
