Content: Printed on border: "Lepus timidus, Lin. Le lievre, Buff." "Fearful of every danger, and attentive to every alarm, the hare is continually upon the watch; and being provided with very long ears, moveable at pleasure, and easily directed to every quarter, is warned of the most distant approaches of danger. Its eyes are large and prominent, adapted to receive the rays of light on every side, and give notice of more immediate alarms. To these may be added its great swiftness, by which it soon leaves most of its pursuers far behind. The hind are much longer than the fore legs…" Includes additional text.
