Content : Printed on border: "The bodies of the penguins are covered very thick and warm with a sort of feathers, and yet they are not true feathers. They are something half way between the scales and fins of a fish and the feathers of a bird. They are, however, very thick and close, and keep the bird quite warm, whether he is walking in the cold wind on the shore, or swimming in the water of the sea." Includes additional text. Foxing on image.
