In another drawing we have a glee-woman dancing round an unmuzzled bear…" "The docility also of that noble animal the horse did not escape the notice of these ingenious tormentors : it was taught to dance, to fence with its fore-feet against a man armed with a staff and buckler…" Includes additional text.
