Friedman (English, Kent State U.) calls them monstrous because they differ in physical appearance and social practices from whoever was describing them. He finds them lurking in Mandeville's Travels, populating the outermost edges of world maps, and resting in neat frames on pages of illustrated encyclopedias. He has made corrections to the 1981 cloth edition
