The Wild Cat Of Europe Felix Catus
Some few years ago, when reading a review of Knox s Autumns on the Spey I came upon the following passage :T here is no British mammal, or reputed British mammal, of whose character, locality, and even existence we are so totally ignorant as the Wild Cat. This surprised me, particularly as it was from the pen of a well-known writer on natural history; so, with the view of giving a somewhat more connected history of this animal than is usually found in books on natural history, more especially as it was the only example of the Feline family indigenous to Britain, and on the point of becoming extinct, I commenced collecting together all available information relating to this subject, both on the Continent and in this country.
This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience. We believe this work is culturally important and have elected to bring the book back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide.
