Caption: Natural history specimens, 18th-century artwork. From top are prehistoric items: a log canoe found in Lancashire, a stone tool, and a copper tool. Below these are marine specimens, with the three artworks at lower centre showing a cuttlefish. The first two artworks at bottom show an invertebrate polyp-like organism found embedded in the sand, referred to by the author in the text as Urtica marina. At bottom right is the head of an unidentified marine animal. Artwork from 'The Natural History of Lancashire, Cheshire, and the Peak in Derbyshire' (1700) by English physician and naturalist Charles Leigh, elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1685.
