Andrade paper title page

 

The account of the discovery of a remnant population of an indigenous wild horse which had survived almost pure in the inaccessible lowlands of the River Sorraia was given by Dr Ruy d'Andrade in a formal presentation to the XII International Zoological Congres in Lisbon in 1935.

 

The paper - in French - is short, only 3 pages, and accompanied by some of Dr Andrade's own photographs. It is reproduced (with kind permission) in the following pages.
