Harrison William Weir (1824 - 1906) was an English gentleman and natural history artist.
At a young age, Weir was apprenticed to George Baxter, the colour-printer and learned to engrave and draw on wood. He taught himself during his spare time to draw birds, mammals, and other subjects from nature.
Weir was enormously prolific and popular as an illustrator. He worked for the Illustrated London News and contributed to many illustrated papers and books. His illustrations of domestic cats, dogs and poultry are probably the best known.
Here are some of his lithographs for you to choose from. They are original antiques, made in the period 1860 to 1902.
