A gentleman of the 18th Century was schooled in the arts of fencing, dance, and horsemanship. What evidence do I cite? Well… the monkeys, of course!
The Fencing Master and The Dance Instructor
Christophe Hüet, from Singeries, ou différentes actions de la vie humaine représentées par des singes (Antics, or various actions of human life performed by monkeys), Paris, 1740.
Thanks for monkey post. To add to your collection, I stumbled on this a short while ago. I saved it because I was amused. I hope you enjoy too. — CPOK
