1878 – The Tame Crow


“The Tame Crow – 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: “A Gentleman had reared a crow. One day this crow disappeared; having, as was then supposed, been shot by some sportsman, or destroyed by accident. About eleven months after this, the gentleman was out walking, when a number of crows passed by; one of them left the flock, and flying directly towards the gentleman, alighted on his shoulder. It was his old friend, the crow which he had reared. But the crow would not stay with him; he soon flew off to join the others, and was seen no more.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
