Hi Marietta,

Your print pair were originally made as illustrations in Richard Blome's 17th century book entitled "The Gentlemans Recreation. ... An Encyclopedy of the Arts and Sciences ... [and] Horsemanship, Hawking, Hunting, Fowling, Fishing and Agriculture. With a Short Treatise of Cock-Fighting."

The artist who produced these images was Arthur Foley. The word 'fecit' is Latin for "made by".

An original framed print from this book would sell for an approximate high of $150 per print on today's market.
