Caption

African Orang-Utan, Zoological Gardens, Regent's Park". Mezzotint engraving with hand tinting, by George Scharf, printed by Hullmandel, of Tommy (in three poses) the first great ape to reach Britain and survive for any length of time. Tommy caused a sensation among the public - and arrived at the zoo in a carriage. He was dressed in a Jersey to keep him warm as shown here. He died of Tuberculosis the following year, and was replaced at the zoo, and in the public's affections, by 'Jenny' the orangutan in 1837.
