“Brown Bob – 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, simply reads: “Squirrels are dear little creatures – so bright-eyed and pretty. Once upon a time some of our children had a pet squirrel, which they called ‘Brown Bob’. They kept him a long time and were very fond of him, but unfortunately one damp winter he got rheumatism and died, which caused his admirers much sorrow.”
