Edward Tyson's Orang-Outang, sive Homo Sylvestris; or, the Anatomy of a Pygmie Compared with that of a monkey, an Ape, and a Man (1699), which actually described the anatomy of a young chimpanzee, was the first work to demonstrate the structural relationships between man and the anthropoid ape. A believer in the "Great Chain of Being," Tyson identified the chimpanzee as the link directly below mankind, stating in his "Epistle dedicatory" that it "seems the Nexus of the Animal and Rational." Tyson's anatomical study-- the first conducted of a great ape-- had a powerful influence on all subsequent thought on man's place in nature-- anatomical, philosophical and literary. The last section of Orang-Outang is devoted to "A philological essay concerning the pygmies of the ancients," an early and major contribution to the study of primate-oriented folklore
