1878 – War


“War – by Harrison Weir”, is a full page book plate image, which has been taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. On this occasion, there is no anecdote, only a short poem and on the opposite page, another illustration, entitled “Peace”. Both involve Rabbits and Dogs. The poem accompanying this illustration reads as follows: “Pompey chases Cocktail; Scamper, little one! If his paws should catch you, All your sport is done. He is strong and cruel, You are weak and wild; Never fed and petted, Like a much-loved child.”

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