Excerpt from Wild Animals in Captivity Being an Account of the Habits, Food, Management and Treatment, of the Beasts and Birds at the Zoo: With Reminiscences and Anecdotes
I may say that the materials for this work, when placed in my hands, were in such a state of chaos that I began to despair of ever being able to get them into any form for publication, but by careful study of the fragmentary papers and rough notes, I have, I hope, succeeded in my humble efforts to bring together an amount of readable matter which may prove interesting, useful, and instructive to the reader.
Much of the matter herein published appeared in land and Water, The Field, Proceedings of the Zoological Society, Punch, and other publications, either anonymously, or under his nom-de - plume D. A. B., and others in his own name.
