This being Borges, I can't be certain of the authenticity of some of the more obscure entries in this handbook of fantastic beasts (in fact, I believe I spotted a couple of creations of his own); nevertheless he is immensely skilled at crafting elegant, beautiful sentences to point out the horror and the wonder of our legends.
