'The Barbary Ape' [Barbary macaque]

Zoological study of the Barbary macaque Macaca sylvanus, native to North Africa and Gibraltar. The animal is shown seated, with a wooded landscape behind and a thistle in the foreground. Plate 1 from the book Speculum Linnaeanum: or Linnean zoology; containing a complete illustration of the zoological part of the Systema Naturae of Linnaeus...by George Shaw, the figures by James Sowerby (London, 1790). The monkey is described in the text: "This animal is the common Barbary ape; which generally grows to about the height of four feet...Its colour is olivaceous brown; the face flesh-coloured. The hands and feet have nails resembling the human, and it is destitute of a tail...It is a native of Africa, and is often found in Barbary.

Original: copperplate engraving. 1790
