1878 – The Swan


“The Swan – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. Instead of the usual anecdote accompanying the illustration, in this case, there is just a quotation which reads as follows: “Here is a beautiful tame Swan. This stately bird which Milton admires as she….’With arched neck, Between the white wings mantling, proudly rows, Her state with oary feet.’…”

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