Caption: Frontispiece to Haeckel's Anthropogenie (a history of human development) published Verlag von Wilhelm Engelmann, 1874. A still controversial treatise on human and evolutionary embryology - which propounded that 'phylogeny recapitulates ontology'. The book has been seen as pushing the facts and pictures to fit the theories, and has been seen by many to have done more harm than good towards advancing evolutionary theories.
