Caption: Contemporary coloured lithograph by Carl Brotdmann of "Der Orang-Uttang" appearing as table 1 in "Naturhistorische Abbinldungen der Saeugethiere" by Heinrich Rudolph Schinz 1824. Though the Orang utang had been quite accurately drawn since the time of Tulpius, (1641), their rarity and resemblance to humans still caused artists confusion well into the nineteenth century.
