I have made a Comparative Survey of this Animal, with a Monkey, an Ape, and a Man. By viewing the same Parts of all these together, we may the better observe Nature ‘s Gradation in the formation ofAnimal Bodies; and the Transitions made from one to another; than which nothing can more conduce to the Attainment of the true Knowledge, both of the Fabrick, and the Uses of the Parts. By following Nature ‘s Clew in this wonderful Labyrinth of the Creation, we may be more easily admitted into her Secret Recesses, which Thread if we miss, we must needs err and be bewilder’d (Tyson, 1699, Preface).
