Content : Printed on border: "Bos bison, Lin. -- Le bison amerique, Buff." "Differs from the rest of the ox kind, in having a large lump between its shoulders, almost as high as that of a camel. He has a long shaggy mane, which forms a kind of beard under his chin, his eyes are fierce, his forehead large, and his horns extremely wide. It is dangerous to pursue him, except in forests abounding with trees large enough to conceal the hunters." "The bison, or the animal with the hump, is found in all the southern parts of the world, though greatly differing from each other in size and form." Includes additional text. Foxing on image.
