Caption

Mastodon skeleton, 19th-century artwork. This prehistoric fossil skeleton had been excavated by US naturalist Charles Willson Peale (1741-1827) in the Hudson River Valley in 1801. The specimen has its tusks incorrectly mounted, curving the wrong way. It became famous as one of the first fossils displayed in the USA. This lithograph is plate 5 from 'Voyage en Amerique en Sicile et en Egypte' (1821). This work documented the journeys in the period 1816 to 1819 by French traveller and artist Edouard de Montule. He travelled in the USA in 1816 and 1817, drawing this artwork on a visit to the Philadelphia Museum in around December 1816.
