Our Dumb Companions: Or, Conversations about Dogs, Horses, Donkeys, and Cats
The above title, first published by the Rev Thomas Jackson in 1864, was used as the basis for a series of plaques, attributed to Anthony Scott of Southwick. The book ran into numerous reprints and was still going strong in the 1890s. My copy is the 5th edition, 1870, from which the scans of prints below were taken. The plaque transfers are adapted from the full-page illustrations, of which there are more than 25, so it is possible that there are quite a few more plaques in this series to be discovered.
