Content : Printed on border: "Le bubale, Buff." "This is the most common of all the larger gazelles, known in any part of Africa.

Its height is somewhat above four feet : the horns are from six to nine inches long, very strong and black, almost close at the base, diverging upwards, and at the top bending backwards in an horizontal direction almost to the tips…" "The general colour of the hart-beest is that of cinnamon…" Includes additional text.
