plead guilty, we, have to dive into

aurocha or the bison by so much as a word. As
the authors of these classics were great sports
men and close observers, this would support the
theory that both these animals had already then
become quite extinct in western Europe.
In the sixteenth century, when Europe, so far
as art was concerned, had at last been aroused
from its mediaeval stupor by the invention of
printing, and an extraordinary demand had
sprung up for pictorial matter illustrating re
cent exploration of new worlds and the various
forms of the chase, there were produced quite a
number of pictures of the aurochs by artists,
very few of whom had ever set eyes upon a live
wild specimen, though they may have seen cap
tive ones. The one artist of whom we positively
know that he had before him at least a stuffed
specimen was the Viennese engraver Auguytin
Hirschvogel (born in Nurnberg about 1503), who
illustrated the famous travel book of Baron Her
berstein, the authority most frequently quoted in
connection with the aurochs, for he was absolute
ly the last intelligent observer who saw the beast
in its wild state, and left pictorial records cf his
impressions Herberstein was gifted with pres
cient eyes, for he foresaw that the aurochs was
doomed to speedy extinction. Hence on his sev
eral expeditions to the unknown interior of Rus
sia as the ambassador, first of Emperor Maxi
milian in 1516-18. then on many different occa
sions as Charles V.'s and Ferdinand's emissary,
he made notes about it, and, what was much more
important, actually brought back with him some
skins and skulls, which he had mounted in his
house in" Vienna, and from which Hlrschvogel.
probably drew his celebrated picture of the
aurochs. To differentiate he drew next to it a
picture of a bison. As these two "portraits."
which have been published scores of times, will
be familiar to all interested in this matter, we
will merely quote the inscriptions placed by Her
herstein over the two pictures, for it is a per
fectly correct differentiation. The picture of the
bison has the following" "I am a Bison. am
called by th,' Poles a Suber. by the Germans a
ilisont or Damthier. and by the ignorant an
aurochs " Over the woodcut of the aurochs: "I
am an flrus which is called by the Poles a Tur,
by the Germans an Aurochs and until now by
the ignorant a Bison." The inscriptions in the
various editions-- Ioerberstein's volume appeared
in several languages--vary trifiingly, but the
above which are taken from the edition of 1556.
give the sense In the best form.
Shortly after TIerberstein the Flemish painter
Stradanus. who lived and worked for over fifty
'eirs in Florence Ifrom 1551 to 1,i), produced

Win Odd Walking Wager.
Gerald Hirsch and Eric Maturia,
two members of a well-known club
in Piccadilly, for a wager walked from
London to Brighton, a distance of 50
miles, the other day in 22% hours, the
former wearing evening dress, with
out a hat, and the latter a cricket
shirt and short walking knickers, the
runs: "Some great lords are looking on at a spec
tacle in the arena. A furious lion with revening
fang and claws tears some wild beasts. He lays
the wolves low and defeats the 'Taurus' in a strug
gle, while the bear cowers away in terror." Wheth
er the artist ever witnessd such a struggle in an
arena cannot be ascertained; but it is quite possi
ble, considering their great popularity during the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The blasts
were caught in pitfalls and
transported great distances.
The likeness is not a bad
one, and in the above col
lection of prints there are
three other pictures of
aurochs, and a fifth depict
Ing the lassoing of the bu
balus on the island of Sar
dinia. A contemporary and
countryman of Stradanus,
one Hans Bel, produced
also an interesting engrav
ing of an aurochs hunt
which forms the second
print of his attractive little
set entitled, "Venationis,
Piscatlonis, et Aucupli
typl," published in 1582 by
the same enterprising Ant
werp publishers that gave
the world the last-named
collection. Beneath the au
rochs picture we read, in
<;ii Latin elegiac couplets:
"Thus with darts, swords,
and light arrows men every
,'~ where drive the horned
aurochs into pits." A rath
er similar print was produced fourteen years
after bmy the Nurnberg engraver, Johann 81b
macher, who etched nine other sporting plates.
Then follow, in rapid succession, half a dozen
"portraits" by Tempesta, the pupil of Stradanus,
one of which prints we reproduce. It shows in
what awe the gigantic wild bull was held, for it
depicts a formidable-looking machine wherewith
the bull could be attacked and brought down.
Tempesta's pictures need not be taken seriously,
for his Roman "studio" was nothing but a work
shop where apprentice hands turned out a vast
mass of prints of little or no value in an enquiry
of this sort His English contemporary of the
pen, Edward Topsell, in his illustrated natural
history hodge-podge called the "Historie of Fouze
Footed )eastes" (1607) only added to the exist
ing confhtson. "A Bison," he says, "is a beast
very strange as may appear by his figure pre
fixed which by many authors is taken for Urus,
some for a Bugle or wild oxe, others, for a
Rangifer, and many for the beast Tarantus or
Buffe." And, to show that he really meant what
he said, he affixes a picture of what is unmistak
ably a reindeer! Fortunately, however, he adds,
as pictures of the bison and of the aurochs, re
plicas of the two prints by Hirschvogel out of
Herberstein's "Rerum Moscoviticarum Commen
tarl." which, as we have already mentioned, are
among the most correct representations pub
lished at a period when the aurochs still existed.
In England, the belif that th aurochs was a
bison-like creature continued throughout the
eightes nth century. The picture taken f"om Sam
uel C'rke's "Julius Caesar," published in 1712,
shows what extraordinary ignorance still pre
vailed" the animal with antlers like an inverted
umbrella being a bison, or Bos germanus, qnd
the beast in the center an aurochs. The graver
of Holzab 'f Zurich, continues the misconcep
tion: indeed, goes one better, for the bison is
here turned into an "American aurochs." Of
numerous other illustrations of our two beasts,
we have not the space to speak at length. One
of the most characteristic of the latter type is
the so-called Hamilton Smith picture of the au
I rochs. This is a painting, dating, it is believed,
from the first quyter of the sixteenth century,
discovered in Augsburg not quite a hundred
years ago. This painting has mysteriously dis
c appeared, but an accurate copy was made. For
the first "modern" picture of the bison that ap
peared in England we have also to go to Ger
