1878 – Pussy Asleep

$7.00$28.00

“Pussy Asleep – 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:

“Just one paw she stretches out; Just with one eye she peers about; Gravely she begins to wash – , A moment, and a sudden dash, Sends the ball out here – out there; Again, her four feet in the air…

She springs, and daintily alights, Then, this merriest of sprites, All her tumbling, jumping, twirling, All her catching, scratching, whirling; Repeats again -each frolic play -, That and sleep fill up her day!”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
