Remarkable Egg

No wonder that a credulous age, which could see nothing extraordinary in

the Barnacle goose, could also, metaphorically, swallow such an egg, as

Licetus, first of all, and Aldrovandus, after him, gives us in the

accompanying true picture. The latter says that a goose's egg was found

in France, (he leaves a liberal margin for locality,) which on being

broken appeared exactly as in the picture. Comment thereon is useless.
