Sawrian" From "The Anniversary of the Literary Fun 1836" by Thomas Hood, published by Baily and Co, Cornhill. The cartoon uses a pun on the Saw and Sawrian to poke fun at Gideon Mantell's recently discovered giant saurian reptiles (named dinosaurs by Richard Owen in 1842). A second pun revolves around the fact that one of Mantell's most celebrated fossils, on display in his private home/museum in London, was that of an articulated iguanodon - found in a rock slab popularly called "the Mantell piece". The cartoon points out it is gideON MANTELL where the besieged gentleman has escaped to safety.
