“A Covey of Partridges” is a very detailed, full page image taken from the September 3rd issue, of “The Graphic”. It is one of those “seasonal” pieces, that the reading public became so used to seeing and expecting from Weir, usually to mark the beginning of the hunting season and to highlight the plight of the animals. This picture is signed and dated, and the engraver in this case is H.Harral (Sc), who has done a tremendous job on interpreting the artists drawing and maintaining the attention to detail. This image has also appeared in “Harpers Weekly” with the artist and engravers names both removed! This excellent rendition is available to the discerning collector, in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
