African primate, 17th century Featured Maps Print

African primate, 17th century

African primate. 17th-century artwork of a gorilla-like primate in the forests of Angola. Although described in the accompanying text as an orangutan, this was the term used at the time for all great apes. This engraving is from 'Africa' (1670) by the London-based Scottish cartographer John Ogilby (1600-1676). This 767-page atlas describes the known lands and peoples of Africa, with 57 plate engravings of maps and artworks. Largely based on the 1668 work 'Naukeurige Beshryvinge der Afrikaenesche gewesten' by Dutch geographer Olfert Dapper, the engravings were by 17th-century Dutch artist Jacob van Meurs
