1836 Gideon Mantell Mantel Piece sawrian Featured Thomas Hood Print

1836 Gideon Mantell Mantel Piece sawrian

"A Sawrian" From "The Anniversary of the Literary Fun 1836" by Thomas Hood, published by Baily and Co, Cornhill. The cartoon uses a pun on the Saw and Sawrian to poke fun at Gideon Mantell's recently discovered giant saurian reptiles (named dinosaurs by Richard Owen in 1842). A second pun revolves around the fact that one of Mantell's most celebrated fossils, on display in his private home/museum in London, was that of an articulated iguanodon - found in a rock slab popularly called "the Mantell piece". The cartoon points out it is gideON MANTELL where the besieged gentleman has escaped to safety

1836 Organic remains early fossil cartoon

From "The Anniversary of the Literary Fun 1836" by Thomas Hood, published by Baily and Co, Cornhill. William Buckland, Roderick Murchison and Gideon Mantell (among other palaeontologists) had, at the time, caused something of a popular stir with their discoveries of sensational organic remains from former worlds. This cartoon (from the same artist that produced Mantell's 'Sawrian') points to another sort of organic remains - in this case the monkey crushed by the organ grinder
