These are, notes Ordeman, "the first aquatints depicting contemporary American foxhunting scenes ever published ... ‘The First Flight’ was the first print published, and it was only after it had proven popular that Mr. Connett issued the three prints that completed the set."

The Check, depicting six huntsmen in an autumn landscape, beside a field where hounds are casting for scent, was the third in the series.
