[Brazilian animal]
[Brazilian animal] [Between these Trees he saw as strange a Monster, the foremost part resembling a Fox, the hinder a Monkey, the Feet were like a Mans, with Ears like an Owl; under whose Belly hung a great Bag, in which it carry'd the Young."]
[London: John Ogilby, 1671.]
Engraving. 130 x 165mm (5 x 6¾"). Trimmed from a larger sheet of text.
An illustration of a creature seen in Brazil, published Ogilby's 'America', a translation of the work by Arnoldus Montanus. The description, as above, comes from the text, not present here. It seems to be an exaggerated account of either an oppossum or a giant anteater.
