1878 – Expectation


“Expectation – 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:  “The lifted paw, the earnest look, Speak better than a printed book, Of joy and resolution; On Mr Rat there shall be done, And that before the set of sun, A righteous execution.”
