“Birds of Passage – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, takes the form of a poem and reads as follows: “Sad is your tale of the beautiful earth, Birds the o’erswept it in power and mirth! Yet, through the wastes of the trackless air, Ye have a Guide, and shall we despair? Ye over desert and deep have passed, – So may we reach our bright Home at last!” (Mrs Hemans).
