“The Fallow-Deer – 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, is comprised of a poem which reads as follows: “The haunt of the fallow deer!, By the moorland spreading wide, Amid whose herbage sere, The red grouse loves to hide; Where the fox barks from the hill, And the owl hoots through the night, And the glossy blackcock croweth shrill, To hail the morning light.”
