Content: Printed on border: "Is called, at the Cape of Good Hope, the Tiger-Wolf, and is very common in that part of the world. Sparrman describes it as a cruel, mischievous, and formidable animal. Its horrid yells are to be heard every night, whilst it prowls about for its prey, and lurks near farm yards, where cattle are kept." Includes additional text. Foxing on image.
