“The Gardener’s Friend – 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:  “The gardener hopes when he digs, Some robin may hop down quite near, To feast on the worms he turns up; And truly no robin need fear, For a gardener welcomes the bird as his friend, His pretty redbreast ever prompt to defend.”
