“Fallow Deer and Lynx – 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, reads as follows: “Our picture shows the cat-like Lynx, in the very act of attacking a full-grown deer, which a minute before had been springing over the tops of the hills full of strength and beauty. In vain the poor deer tries to shake off his cruel enemy, and at last, bounding in his agony high into the air, he falls bleeding and dead upon the grass.”
