“The Nightingale – 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: “Nightingales are shy, retiring birds, and are very rarely seen. But their song is most delightful. They begin it in the evening, and generally continue it for the whole night.”
‘So they live in modest ways, Trust entire, and careless praise.’ – KEBLE.
