An artist's study of monkeys at the zoo, at play, furious, at meal-time, sulking and all kinds of monkeys. Twenty-three of the artist's drawings are reproduced as colour plates, and fifty more in black-and-white. The text, also by the author-artist, describes the nature of monkeys in general, their habits in common with man and other mammals, their intelligence, and the lands of origin.
