Caption

Evolution caricature. Engraved caricature of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Apes or monkeys being introduced to another ape who lives in "polite society" by Mr Punch, a cartoon character. The upper-class ape (right) is dressed in the fashionable clothes of the day and holding the fortieth volume of a book that he has been reading. This cartoon of apes trying to improve themselves was drawn in response to Darwin's idea that humans had evolved from ape-like creatures. Darwin's theory was first implied in his Origin of Species (1859) before being covered fully in The Descent of Man (1871). Taken from an 1861 edition of Punch, a British satirical magazine.
