“The Lamb and the Linnet – 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 lamb, who from a wolf had fled, A linnet saw, and to her said: ‘How gay and happy thou must be! No wolf can ever injure thee!’ …”Nay’ said the Linnet, ‘envy not, My state, if thou must mourn thy lot; If as a bird thou’dst seen the light, Thou would’st have feared a hungry kite!’.”
