“The Arctic or White Bear – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “The Arctic Bear lives upon fish and seals. Sometimes it is carried on a piece of ice from Greenland to Iceland, where is devours the sheep, and is at length killed by the people. This bear is white, and in this respect is like the Syrian Bear.”
