    jocko

    Hi all,
    I am reading on the subject of evolution and have found the following sentence by a reviewer of Darwin's Descent of Man (1871):

    «Mr. Darwin insists in presenting Jocko as almost one of ourselves»

    I thought "Jocko" was an archaic sort of "ape-man" term, would anybody confirm this?
    Despite the capital J, there is no character named Jocko in the book —unless he was an historical character (or monkey) which I never knew.

    Thanks a lot!
