Caption: 1812 Copperplate engraving of a "lar or long armed ape" (gibbon) from Pantalogia New Cyclopedia, published by Sherwood and Co, Paternoster St. London. Few large primates had made it into captivity in England by the end of the 18th century, so artists impressions were often fanciful and very human.
