Peabody Museum of Natural History Bulletin 31. A monographic study of the Miocene “apes” of Uganda and Kenya. The study concludes that individual species of Dryopithecus (Proconsul) were independently ancestral to the living African apes, the gorilla and the chimpanzee. This view has been discredited by researchers in the 1970s. The abstract is presented in English, German and Russian. No ownership marks and few signs of use.
