“Dogs hunting the Wild Boar – 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: “Wild Boars are found in France, Germany, and other parts of Europe, as well as in Asia and Africa. At one time they were common in our English forests. In the reign of William the Conqueror, hunting the wild boar was a favourite pastime with the nobles. They killed the boar by means of their short spears or swords, after he was brought to bay by the dogs, who, however, were often dreadfully torn by their long tusks.”
