Content: Illegible engraver's signature at lower right of image. Printed on border: "Yak, the wild (and domesticated) ox of the Tibetan plateau; a species nearly allied to the bison group. The yak, Bos (Pöephagus) gruniens, is one of the finest and largest of the wild oxen, characterized by the growth of long shaggy hair on the flanks and under parts of the body and the well-known bushy tail." "Yak have the great disadvantage that they will not eat corn, and the large pure-bred animals will not live at low elevations." Includes additional text.
