Victorian Carte de Visite


Sir Richard Owen, FRS KCB (1804 - 1892) was an English biologist, comparative anatomist and paleontologist. He is probably best remembered today for coining the word Dinosauria (meaning "Terrible Reptile" or "Fearfully Great Reptile") and for his outspoken opposition to Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. He also wrote on the platypus and found that the platypus was indeed a true mammal. Reverse with printed details of photographer.
