Notes:

"Cambridge: Metcalf and Company, printers to the University"--Verso of t.p.

"This work may be regarded as an abridgment of Mrs. Trimmer's Natural history, though additions have been made from various sources, and a number of American animals introduced, not noticed in that work. ... The work is adapted not only to general use, but to reading and recitation in schools, and the opportunity which the subject offered for occasional reflections and remarks, tending to cultivate feelings of humanity towards domestic, as well as other animals, has not been neglected."--Preface, p. [3].

Footnotes contain questions teachers might ask students to test comprehension.

Largely adapted and abridged from Bewick's A general history of quadrupeds (1799), and History of British birds (1799)--Cf. Osborne Coll., p. 213-214.
