Pieneman - Field Marshal Henry William Paget N070459

APSLEY HOUSE, London. Field Marshal Henry William Paget 1st Marquess of Anglesey (1768-1854) sketched by Jan Willem PIENEMAN in 1821 (WM 1481-1948). Despite personal differences with the Duke of Wellington, in 1815 General Paget commanded the Cavalry Corps. He successfully covered the withdrawal of the Allies following the Battle of Quatre Bras. At the Battle of Waterloo he led a spectacular cavalry charge that turned back D'Erlon's Corps from their assault. One of the last cannon shots fired that day hit Paget in the right leg, necessitating its amputation. According to anecdote he was close to Wellington when he was hit, exclaiming, "By God, sir, I've lost my leg!" To which Wellington replied, "By God, sir, so you have!"

1874 Monkey Darwin cartoon by Faustin Featured February Print

1874 Monkey Darwin cartoon by Faustin

"Prof. Darwin" coloured lithograph by Faustin Betbeder, with original Shakespeare quotes in text below. Front page of the "Figaro" paper N. 475, London Wednesday February 18th 1874. It appeared there as an advert for the sister paper, the more expensive London Sketch-Book of the same month. The colour lithograph sample was clipped and stuck on for that purpose. Charles Darwin owned a copy of this version in his own collection (Darwin Archive 140.4). He also kept the associated text clipping which notes "with rare humility (Darwin) owns that his ancestors were apes. It appears that one person believed in the Darwinian theory, which we hold to be evidence that man is descended from a certain long eared quadruped" (donkey). Charles Darwin published The Descent of Man in 1871. This caricature of Charles Darwin as an ape also appeared in the London Sketch Book in 1874 as a souvenir print
