“The Stag in trouble – 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: “The picture shows us a poor Stag in great trouble. His horns, or antlers, are entangled with the branch of a tree, and he struggles forward without knowing that he is only making things worse. His efforts to get free are only fixing the horns more tightly in the branch, and increasing his difficulties. The same sort of thing happens sometimes to those who should be wiser than the stag. How frequently one trouble brings on another; and so it is one falsehood leads to many.”
