Punch, 13 (1847), 169* .
Zoology, Animal Behaviour, Amusement
Applauds the book under review because it believes that the 'class of animals having a tendency to formidable and destructive habits' should participate in 'harmless amusement[s]'. Relishes the prospect of seeing bulls skipping and elephants playing skittles, since such activities will keep the animals 'out of mischief'. Illustrations depict these strange activities.
