1878 – Sheep and Lambs


“Sheep and Lambs – 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 lambs and sheep their noontide keep, Here on this sheltered ground; Is it not sweet to hear them bleat?, What love is in the sound!:  My child, true prayer and tender care, In those fond tones unite; All lambs who bleat at Jesus’ feet, Are happy, day and night.”

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