The Whale, c1850. Artist: Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins Featured Print

The Whale, c1850. Artist: Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins

The Whale, c1850. Around the main illustration of harpooning a whale and the whalers being tossed from their boat are vignettes of the uses to which the whale was put after the carcass had been cut up. Spermeciti candles and whale oil were prized for lighting. Whalebone, from the plates from the upper jaw of whalebone whales, was used for corsets and for umbrella frames. Whale meat was eaten. Ambergris was used in perfumes. Parts which were otherwise of no use were applied as fertilizer. From Graphic Illustrations of Animals and Their Utility to Man. (London, c1850)

Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. Artist: Edward Linley Sambourne

Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. After qualifying and practising as a surgeon, Owen (1804-1892) made major contributions in the fields of anatomy and paleontology. He was responsible for first coining the word dinosaur (terrible lizard) in 1841 for the fossilized reptiles that had been discovered. Owen was opposed to Darwin's theories, believing that natural selection was insufficient to explain evolution. The figure on the left with a letter in his mouth is TH Huxley (1825-1895), the English biologist who championed Darwin. Cartoon from Edward Linley Sambourne's Fancy Portrait series for Punch, (London, 5 January 1884)
