More information about the print:

La Fontaine's Fable tells us how once there was a quarrel among the Vultures over the body of a dead dog, which resulted in a terrific encounter.

"With tooth and nail
They battled ; many chiefs fell dead,
Many a dauntless hero bled."

All this aroused the pity of the Pigeons, who succeeded in pacifying the quarrellers, but
they, as soon as they were united, turned against the defenceless peacemakers. In the illustration a long array of vultures are seen swooping down on the huddling pigeons, while indications of the preceding struggle are shown in the distance.
