1878 – “Brown Bob”


“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.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
