“A Scholastic Jackdaw – 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: “This mischievous Jackdaw is called ‘Sambo,’ and lives at a school, where he is a great favourite with all the pupils. When he first came there, he would often amuse himself by turning a few ink-wells, upside down, and emptying their contents over the desks. Sambo was at last taught better manners, but even now forgets himself sometimes, and does very naughty things.”
