From "The Anniversary of the Literary Fun 1836" by Thomas Hood, published by Baily and Co, Cornhill. William Buckland, Roderick Murchison and Gideon Mantell (among other palaeontologists) had, at the time, caused something of a popular stir with their discoveries of sensational organic remains from former worlds. This cartoon (from the same artist that produced Mantell's 'Sawrian') points to another sort of organic remains - in this case the monkey crushed by the organ grinder.
