Artist's Description

1815 Copperplate engraving from Bertuch's Bilderbuch fur kinder" 16 plate 5. with contemporary colour. 'Colosal Polypus' (octopus) attacking a ship. A copy of Pierre de Montfort's engraving in Histoire Naturelle des Mollusques" 1810. The plate was meant to represent a true living animal - all be it rather sensationally. The text to this picture notes "A ship from St. Malo did but expect the moment of her departure from the coast of Angola where she made her trade, t'is to say her traffic with Negros, ivory and gold dust, when at broad daylight- the wind being still, she was ready to sink in the port. A monstrous polypus rising from the flood, fell upon the ship, and compassing about - with it's arms as long and pliant as horrible - her tacklings, and mast to the very top, would draw her down to the abyss", "all mariners had much ado to cut off the arms of that dreadful beast"."

About Paul D Stewart

Paul D Stewart

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
