Caption: Frontis for Gideon Mantell's popular book "Wonders of Geology" (1838) which did much to popularise geology during victorian times. It ran to many editions - the third here came just one year after the first. The frontispiece shows a coral forming organisms drawn by his daughter Ellen Maria Mantell.
