Thomas Huxley illustration mounted print

Thomas Huxley illustration mounted print

This mounted print features the frontispiece illustration from Thomas Huxley’s groundbreaking book Man’s Place in Nature, drawn by nineteenth-century English sculptor Waterhouse Hawkins.


Drawn from specimens in the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons, this iconic image features the skeletons of the gibbon, orang-utan, chimpanzee, gorilla and human.


Huxley applied Darwin’s ideas of evolutionary theory to humans, and was a pioneer in the field of comparative anatomy. This fascinating print illustrates Huxley’s concept of a common evolutionary ancestor between humanity and apes.


This fantastic print would make a thought-provoking gift to anyone interested in natural history.
