Of Alce.

A Kinde of Deare, called (the Aethio∣pian Bull) some report that the Alce hath no ioynts in his legges,* & therefore doth neuer lye, but leane to a trée. I find no such report in Gesner for truth, he is in conlour like the fallow Deare, short & broad horned: This beast is the right Elcke, of whose hide the most best Buffe is made, for doublet and bréeches. Those which translated the Bible into Eng∣lish, as it appeareth in the .14. chapter of Deu. among cleane beasts: this Elcke is named there Chaimois, and Camois in Hebrue is called Zamer: the Muscouites call him Lozzos, & some haue vsed one name and some another, because they had no farther knowledge. Gesner in folio. 2 these breed in Hircania, a coūtry in Asia.
