1873 – The Wounded Cock

$7.00$28.00

“The Wounded Cock – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, originally published in an issue of “Chatterbox” dated 1873, but this image is taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The accompanying anecdote reads: “Ina farmyard were two cocks and many hens. One day the two cocks fell out, and fought for some time; at last one was thoroughly beaten, and was left by the other sorely wounded and crest-fallen. The victor walked off, and the hens accompanied him but one, who came up to the poor crippled cock, and, by all the means in her power, tried to show how sorry she was for him. And so for days she attended to him, until he got well. One faithful friend is worth a host of flatterers.”
