The Book of Antelopes

Nature volume 63, pages 509510 (28 March 1901) | Download Citation



IT was the intention of the late Sir Victor Brooke, who for many years of his life devoted a large amount of time and attention to the study of the ruminants generally, to write an illustrated monograph of that interesting and beautiful, although ill-defined, section of them commonly known as antelopes. And with this end in view he instructed the late Mr. Joseph Wolf to prepare a number of coloured sketches of these animals, which were in due course transferred to stone, printed off, and coloured by hand. A considerable bulk of manuscript was also written by Sir Victor; but, for some reason or another, the work was never brought to anything like completion during his lifetime.
