Lyceum 1790 Just arrived

Author: Exeter 'Change London
Year: 1790
Description: Handbill, Rhinoceros “Just arrived at the Lyceum”, [1790] (British Library, Lysons<br>Collectanea).<br>“The rhinoceros, or real unicorn, just arrived at the Lyceum, near Exeter-Change in the Strand. From<br>the Empire of the Great Mogul, he was presented to an English Nobleman by an Eastern Rajah, as a<br>Rarity seldom to be met with, and His Lordship has complimented the curious of his native Country<br>by presenting him to a Gentleman who has carefully brought him home for their Inspection. He is<br>about two Years old in perfect Health. This wonderful Beast with his impenetrable Coat of Mail and<br>other singularities is so fully described and admired by Naturalists in general, that we presume it is<br>sufficient to inform those who Contemplate and Admire the boundless productions of the Creation,<br>that this Herculean Quadrupede is to be seen as above. Admittance One Shilling each Person.”<br>
