“Poor Robin Redbreast – 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: “Poor Robin Redbreast, Dying in the snow!, How the trees do shiver!, How the wind does blow! Dear Little Robin, Feels his end draw near, Thinks that he is going, With the dying year.”
