Caption

A rare British broadsheet with contemporary hand colouring, drawn and engraved by John Emslie and published by James Reynolds in 1849. It shows reconstructions of extinct creatures in their established epocs prior to the creation of man. The illustration's apparent geological continuity of life predates Darwin's theories but may not have been the intention of the artist. It was part of a series of popular science broadsheets by Reynolds.
