The Survival of the Fittest'; application of Darwinism in the 21st century, 1880. Artist: George du Maurier

The Survival of the Fittest'; application of Darwinism in the 21st century, 1880. The term Survival of the fittest was first used by Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) in 1851, and adopted by Darwin in the 6th edition of The Origin of Species (1872). If applied amongst the British aristocracy, by the 21st century they would be divided into two distinct parties, The Handsome People and The Clever People. Fusion of the two by intermarriage would be mutually beneficial to them and their progeny. Cartoon from Punch. (London, 24 April 1880)

Charles Darwin, English naturalist, 1875. Artist: Edward Linley Sambourne

Charles Darwin, English naturalist, 1875. 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. In this cartoon from Punch, Darwin is portrayed with his head superimposed on the body of a monkey, referring to the controversy raging at the time over Darwin's theory that man is descended from apes. It also refers to his The Movement and Habits of Climbing Plants, published in 1875, which was an expansion of a paper which appeared in the Journal of the Linnean Society in 1865
