“A Sociable Donkey – 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 brief anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “This donkey’s name is ‘Jacob.’ Jacob has been used to society: the society of a cow and a pony. They have been taken away, and Jacob does not like being left alone, so he opens the gate and trots off to find company. Let us hope he will find what he wishes.”
