Notes
Content : Printed on border: "Vol. IV. April 23, 1836. No. 199." "The zebra is the most beautiful, and at the same time the wildest animal in nature. Nothing can exceed the delicate regularity of this creature's colour, or the lustrous smoothness of its skin : but, on the other hand, nothing can be more timid or more untameable. The zebra in shape rather resembles the mule than the horse or the ass; it is rather less than the former, and yet larger than the latter." Includes additional text. Foxing and pink stains on image.

Source note: The Dublin penny journal, 1835-36. (Dublin : [s.n.] 1836) Hardy, Philip Dixon (1794?-1875), Editor.
