“A Clever Gander – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. A brief anecdote accompanies the illustration and reads as follows: ” The clever Gander belonged to an old man who would talk to it as if it were a child. The gander seemed to like this, for when he called it ‘my man’ and clapped it on the head, it would follow him about like a little dog.”
