“Old Jack and his Master – 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: “Old Jack’s driver was rather too fond of ‘a drop’ before breakfast. One day he stayed so long inside a public-house that Old Jack, becoming impatient, poked his head in at the open door, and taking his master’s coat-collar between his teeth, in a gentle sort of manner, pulled him out.”
