1878 – An Unwelcome Visitor


“An Unwelcome Visitor – 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 anecdote accompanying the illustration reads as follows: “One night this little donkey in trying to get at some ivy which clothed the wall, rang the door-bell. When the maid opened the door, her light was blown out by the wind, and seeing only two feet on the step, and a great dark face peering through the gloom, she fell back with a shriek, which brought her master down to see whatever could be the matter. But he had a light, and soon saw who the visitor was.”

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