Shelf locator: PC ANI-Ante
Content : Printed on border: "Antilope picta, Pallas -- Taureau cerf des Indes, Buffon, Supp." "This is a very remarkable animal, which seems to unite somewhat of the characters of the antelope and the ox. It is as large as a stag, but its limbs are more massive; and, from the shortness of its hind legs, it runs with an appearance of awkward effort. Its Indian name signifies 'the blue ox.' It inhabits the plain of the Indus, the mountains of Cashemere, and probably the chain of the Himalaya. It has bred in this country. The individual here represented was in Atkins' travelling menagerie."
