Notes
Content: Foxing on image. Written on border: "1855" Printed on border: "The male rabbit is called 'a buck,' the female 'a doe.' The English language has not, like the French, a special word (Lapereau) to denote the young. Rabbits are polygamous -- one male being quite sufficient for as many as thirty females; in warrens, only one is allowed to a hundred. The adult bucks are overbearing, mischievous, and quarrelsome." "One striking point of dissimilarity between the hare and rabbit is, that whilst the hare merely forms a shallow hollow in the earth for her form or nest, the rabbit excavates deep and tortuous burrows." Includes additional text.
