Comments:
by Austin Sprake:
A horse-drawn ploughing scene with a church in the background. This later version, with the flock of birds not woven in.

by Geoffrey Godden:
[The normal version is recorded as st252 on this site].

A later version, which I have designated 29a [the image above], omits the birds woven above the church. This picture is normally found on type C or later card-mounts; and sometimes the French and German titles, 'Le Laboureur' and 'Gott Segne den Fleissen Landmann', are printed below the English title [more information about these triple title card-mounts]
