1878 – The First Swallow

$7.00$28.00

“The First Swallow – 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 (in this  case by “Cowper”) and reads as follows:  “I am fond of the Swallows. I learn from her flight, Had I skill to improve it, a lesson of Love; How seldom on earth, do we see her alight – , She dwells in the skies, she is ever above. She comes in the spring, all the summer she stays, And dreading the cold, still follows the sun; So, true to our Love, we should covet His rays, And the place where he shines not, immediately shun.”  COWPER.
