Notes
Content : Written on border: "Cavy" Foxing on image. Printed on border: "Is an animal of the New World, who digs a burrow like a rabbit, to which he has been compared, though there is scarcely any likeness between these two animals; he is much larger than the rabbit, and even than the hare; he has a round head, and the snout short; he is fat and bulky, and by the form of his body he is more like a pig, as well as by grunting, waddling, and the manner of eating; for he does not use, as the rabbit does, his fore feet to carry food to his mouth; but grubs up the earth like the hog, to find his subsistence." Includes additional text.
