notes: 
Text describes the Patagonians as described by Pigafetta and describes the animal as having the form of a mule in the head and ears, the body of a camel and the tail resembles a horse's. Thevet, a Franciscan monk, traveled to Brazil with Nicolas Durand, chevalier de Villegagnon. He stayed only ten weeks, returning to France in 1556, and wrote Les singularitez de la France Antarctique from his own observations and those of others. As a result of the popularity of Les singularitez, Thevet received the position of cosmographer to the French court and wrote this book, an account of the known world. Title is from marginal gloss.
