Space I

Foa w:Lion

“Those parts of the earth not yet trodden by the foot of man, where nature is left to itself, are becoming more and more rare at the end of the nineteenth century. Future generations will only find in fossil traces of those gigantic animals which an unknown law is sweeping little by little from the face of the globe, giving preferences to races smaller and better adapted to lack of space and to the ever-increasing invasion of humanity.”

— Edouard Foa, F.R.G.S.
“After Big Game in Central Africa” c.1899
