1826 Naturalist Charles Waterton & Caiman

Photograph - Photograph


It was the first and last time I was ever on a Cayman's back" coloured engraving by Robert Cruikshank after drawing of Captain Edward Jones. Published in 1827 by Humphrey of St. James St. London. Plate to accompany (as a rare inclusion) page 232 of Charles Waterton's Second edition "Wanderings in South America" (first edn 1825, second 1828). Waterton was the famously eccentric squire and pioneering conservationist of Waterton Hall. This incident occurred during his 1820 Demerara (Guyana) trip. He was accompanied by native Indians and black slaves of his host Charles, and later Robert, Edmonstone. One of these slaves, John Edmonstone, learnt taxidermy from Waterton in Guyana and later travelled with his master to Britain where he was freed. John was later employed by the Edinburgh Museum, where he taught Charles Darwin taxidermy, and inspired him with his accounts of the rainforest."
