Caption

A letter from Gideon Mantell shortly after his discovery of Iguanodon - then only the second dinosaur discovery, and before the announcement of the first Megalosaurus by William Buckland. Mantell apologises for being too busy to attend a dinner. It reveals the careful elegant script of Mantell and is addressed from Castle Place in Lewes, his home when he made his most important discoveries. The letter is placed near fossils and one of Mantell's later book illustrations of his Iguanodon discoveries.
