THE LAND OF BOLIVAR AND ITS PRODUCTS 2

    Abstract

    VENEZUELA, or the Land of Bolivar, as Mr. Spence prefers to call it, has certainly received less attention from European travellers than many other less attractive and more explored parts of South America. The Andean ranges of the north and the llanos of the south of the republic alike merit attention, and now that mining enterprise has opened up several parts of the country and tinged it with European civilisation, we know of no more come-atable country to which the naturalist could turn his steps. Certain it is that he would find ample materials for investigation, and reap a good harvest of novelties in either fauna or flora.
