“The Dog and his shadow – 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, takes the form of a poem and reads as follows:  “A Dog, who from a butchers shop, Has carried off a mutton-chop, Its shadow in the river spies, And thinks,’Here is another prize!’:  He springs upon it to obtain, The booty, but he springs in vain; Not only does he gain no more, But loses what he had before.”
