$7.00$28.00

“Sambo and his Feathered Friends” is a full-page book plate taken from “Animal Sagacity”, edited by Mrs S.C.Hall, and published by S.W.Partridge, circa 1866. The accompanying anecdote is about two dogs, Don and Sambo, but we shall concentrate on the story about Sambo, who lived in the stable-yard, which was also the residence of some poultry, on whom Sambo bestowed his affection. When the other dog came into the yard, he would give chase to the birds, and Sambo would respond, flying at Don with angry eyes and bristling hair, never ceasing pursuit until he had chased him from the yard. The poultry, looking upon him as their champion, would gather around him, the moment any danger appeared imminent. Some of the cocks behaved roughly with one of the older birds, who, would take refuge on the fine dog’s back. Sambo, would then not allow any of the other Cochins to molest his rider, who continued to enjoy his protection. This images also appears in the December 1865 edition of “The Children’s Friend” with the caption, “Sambo and the Cochin Fowls”. Currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
