Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Carl Hagenbeck, 27 November 1902

Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/97
Scope and Contents

Hagenbeck offers Ewart £100 for the three hybrids he is selling. He offers Ewart a young Przewalski's horse skin and skeleton. He also has in his possession the skins of some Siberian Ibex which he suggests might be fitting for Ewart's 'museum' (presumably the Natural History collections at the University of Edinburgh). Hagenbeck also mentions that he had bad luck with Ewart's zebra 'Matopo', who was returned to him by a buyer due to a lung condition.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Carl Hagenbeck, 11 December 1902

Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/113
Scope and Contents

Hagenbeck announces that the hybrids have arrived in Hamburg safely. He states that if Ewart would like them returned then he would sell the large ones for £40 each and the small one for £20. He has concluded that the Ibex skins are not a very good quality and so will send a better variety to him in the Spring.
