1876 – That is my place!


“That is my place!” is a full page book plate image taken from “The Man’s Boot and Other Tales” by Gertrude Sellon, published by Griffith & Farran in 1876. All eight illustrations in this delightful little book are by Harrison Weir and his name is proudly advertised on the cover surrounded in gilt. This particular image, illustrates the story of two Wrens, who engage in a fight over who should have first right of ownership to a nesting place. Their disagreement draws attention from a cat, with only naturally devastating results. The illustrations in the book are varied, but of excellent quality, and exemplify Harrison’s talent for enhancing the storytellers art, with his very skilled “interpretative” pencil!

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
