Description

This Carriage has the same advantage as the Landau, only that the number of passengers is proportionably less; but for convenience where only one carriage is kept, none exceed it if for country use. When a Demi Landau is used open, the common sort of coach-box is objectionable, being so high as to take away the prospect in front, which is principally obscured by the coach-man sitting there. A boot with a concealed chair or coach-box, when used as a Landau, answers best. The common coach-box may be added occasionally for town use, the same as to a Post Chariot; the mode of finishing will answer for any other description, except only the difference in price between a Post Chaise and a Demi Landau.
