Notes: Printed on border: "Parley's magazine." "This curious quadruped, of which only a single species is known to exist, seems to be one of the sports of nature." "The head is like that of the deer, armed with two round horns, each tufted with a brush of coarse black hair; and its legs and feet resemble those of the same animal, but with this remarkable difference, that the fore legs appear to be nearly twice as long as the hinder; which, however, is occasioned merely by the extraordinary height of the shoulders compared with the thighs." Includes additional text.
