1878 – “Master Magrath”


“Master Magrath  – 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:  “Here is the likeness of ‘Master Magrath.’ This dog was named after a poor boy, to whom he once belonged. ‘Master Magrath’ ran so very fast, and he was so wonderfully clever in catching hares, that he became quite famous. A short time before his death he visited Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
