: 1 print : b&w ; 21 x 16 cm. (8 1/4 x 6 1/4 in.)


: Printed on border: "...jesses, it marks out its intended prey, and overpassing even the swift limbs by its swifter wings, speedily overtakes it, and swoops upon its head. Rising from the attack, it soars into the air for another swoop, and by repeated assaults bewilders the poor animal so completely that it falls an easy prey to the greyhound, which is trained to wait upon the falcon and watch its flight. When however the gazelle is hunted merely for the sake of its flesh and skin, a very different mode is pursued."
