A~ Galloping Tour through the World of Dr. Syntax

Dr. Syntax was a comic figure created by William Combe and cartoonist Thomas Rowlandson, and much enjoyed by Jane Austen for their satirizing William Gilpin, a chief proponent of the 'picturesque', in the comic poem The Three Tours of Dr. Syntax. He was also a famous Regency thoroughbred racehorse and sire (1811-1838), depicted by John Herring Sr. Blending the spirit of both, and their 'connection' to Austen, he appears now as you see him. Ready with quips, nips and carrots, the good Doctor takes the discerning on a tour through TBNLA, the Regency world of Austen and all things pertinent to 'period' in his dashing debut Canterlogue.
