Rimmer was an artist and architectural historian - he published many books examining historic buildings, illustrating them himself. He published 'Pleasant Spots Around Oxford' in 1878, for which this is a prepatory sketch. The published engravings were done by Percy Roberts after Rimmer's sketches. The title probably refers to Dorchester-on-Thames, in South Oxfordshire, rather than the county town of Dorset, somewhat further afield from Oxford.
