Publisher Description

The great family of the Monkeys, or the “Monkey tribe”, as it is usually called, is divided by naturalists into two large groups—the “Monkeys of the Old World”, or those that inhabit Africa, Asia, and the Asiatic islands; and the “Monkeys of the New World”, or those that belong to America. This classification is neither scientific nor natural, but as it serves to simplify the study of these quadrupeds—or quadrumana, as they are termed—it is here retained. Moreover, as there is no genus of monkey, nor even a species, common to both hemispheres, such a division can do no harm.
