Charles Darwin, English naturalist, 1871

Charles Darwin, English naturalist, 1871. Darwin (1809-1882) was employed as naturalist on HMS Beagle from 1831-1836. He first made his name as a geologist, but is remembered for his momentous contributions to biology - primarily his demonstration that evolution has occurred and his discovery of the principle of natural selection of heritable variation as the cause of evolution. His famous book Origin of Species was published in 1859. Cartoon from Vanity Fair, London, September 1871

Karrs Pinnacles, 1872. Creator: William Ludwell Sheppard Featured Print

Karrs Pinnacles, 1872. Creator: William Ludwell Sheppard

Karr's Pinnacles, 1872. Unusual rock formation eighteen miles above Petersburg, West Virginia, USA: ...we see two thin sheets of rock, towering perpendicularly, side by side, far above the tops of the loftiest forest-trees, their jagged and grotesque outlines drawn in dark silhouette against the clear-blue sky. The edge presentation exhibits a pair of monuments, one of which bears a rude resemblance to the obelisk of Luxor, the other to a monumental spire of the pinnacled Gothic style...I should say they exceeded two hundred feet in height, with a tapering width of from ten to five feet...Staring like grim Cyclopean skeletons through the lonely wood, they have "a fiendish look", and we feel a creeping terror in their presence...Our picture, though technically correct, has quite failed to catch the haunted aspect of the locality'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]

The Cliffs of Seneca, 1872. Creator: William Ludwell Sheppard Featured Print

The Cliffs of Seneca, 1872. Creator: William Ludwell Sheppard

The Cliffs of Seneca, 1872. View of Seneca Rocks, at the confluence of Seneca Creek with the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River in West Virginia, USA: Imagine a thin, laminated sheet of rock, half a mile long by five hundred feet broad, set up on edge, the base covered for one-third of the height by a forest-grown talus; its sides ribbed with narrow terraces, moss-carpeted and festooned with gay, flowering shrubs; the bare surfaces stained with varied colors...its upper edge riven, splintered, and carved with a succession of grotesque forms which the pencil alone can describe. On the left the cliff abuts against a wooded mountain, defended, as it were, by a double line of bastioned and embattled walls. On the right it terminates abruptly in a sharp precipice'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]
