“Squib and the Feather – 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: “When Swans are pluming themselves, a good many of their feathers drop out. ‘Squib’ has just fetched one for his young mistress, by whom he was sent into the water, and who will be very much pleased with it, for she has long been wishing for one of these pretty white feathers to put in her favourite dolly’s hat.”
