Notes
Content: Foxing and pink marks on image. Printed on border: "C. argentatus, Desm. C. fulvus, Desm." "The animal is very rare, a greater number than four or five being seldom taken in a season in the fur countries. The fur is six times the value of any other fur produced in North America. It is sometimes found of a shining black, the tip of the tail being white. … It inhabits the same districts with the red fox. It is not yet clearly proved that it is of the same species as the black fox of Europe, though it bears a strong resemblance to it." "The common fox of America is supposed by Cuvier to be a distinct species from the red fox of Europe. It inhabits all parts of the United States."
