1854 Crystal Palace Dinosaurs by Baxter 1 Featured Dinosaurs Print

1854 Crystal Palace Dinosaurs by Baxter 1

1854. Sydenham Crystal Palace with Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins' dinosaur sculptures in the foreground. 11cm x 16.3 cm. Miniature colour print by the George Baxter patent process of mutiple ink blocks. This version of the print is softened and colour corrected for age-toning to provide the best image. Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins' sculptures were the first models of dinosaurs ever produced, and all the more striking for being life size. Left to right they are in the water left Teleosaurus, first on land Megalosaurus, Hyaeolosaurus, Labyrinthdont (?), Iguanodon, and unidentified far right. They caused a sensation in Victorian England and ushered in the dinosaurs' enduring popularity with the general public. The models still survive in Sydenham Park, though the Crystal Palace was destroyed by fire. Original print in the collection of Paul D. Stewart

1863 Huxley from Ape to Man evolution Featured Dinosaurs Print

1863 Huxley from Ape to Man evolution

Ordered series of primate skeletons. The Frontis engraving by Waterhouse Hawkins from the first edition of Huxley's 1863 "Evidences as to Man's Place in Nature". In this book Huxley presented his evidence that man was descended from the apes. It was published in reaction to Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" 1859. Though this image is often interpreted as indicating a line of descent, it is more intended to show ordered variation in limb bones and posture as well as the clear skeletal similarities in the group. The image has been quoted as an inspiration for Rudolph Zalinger's famous Time-Life 1965 image "The Road to Homo Sapiens" (page 40-45, Nature Library Early Man). That iconic image has become known as "The March of Progress". The artist for this work, Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, was famous for his pioneering dinosaur reconstructions but lectured against Darwinian evolution

1861 Punch Dinosaurs & Comet cartoon 1861 Punch Dinosaurs & Comet cartoon

From Punch 41 (1861) page 34, July. "The age of the comet ascertained to a nicety. The antediluvians recognise an old acquantance of A.M. 1372". Prehistoric reptiles (modelled after Waterhouse Hawkins' Crystal Palace reconstructions at Sydenham), stare through telescopes at "the Great Comet of 1861". The comet was visible to the naked eye for three months in that year. The comet is now formally designated C/1861 J1 or 1861 II. The cartoon supposes the dinosaurs saw the same periodic comet during their reign on earth. This comet came within 0.1326 AU of the Earth - during which time the earth was within the Comet' tail. By day the comet's gas and dust even dimmed the sun. The cartoon gains poignance in light of the comet's near approach and recent theories about the dinosaurs' demise. The closest dinosaur is modelled after Hyaeolosaurus, mid distance Teleosaurus, furthest away iguanodon
