Instinct Displayed

The book Instinct Displayed in a Collection of Well-Authenticated Facts Exemplifying the Extraordinary Sagacity of Various Species of the Animal Creation was first published in 1811. On the title page of the 4th edition is the following quote.

                                            is not the earth,

With various living creatures, and the air

Replenished, and all these at thy command,

To come and play before thee? Knowest thou not,

Their language and their ways? They also know,

And reason not contemptibility
