'Monstrous puppy'

Two studies, above and below, of conjoined puppies showing a single head but two sets of back legs and tails. Inscribed: "A monsterous pupe shewne to y. Society May [169- erased] 1700". Not signed. Numbered verso, "20". Details of the dog are given in the Royal Society's Journal Book [JBO/10] at a meeting of 29 May 1700: "A person shew'd a monstrous puppy; it had one head, a large tongue, 2 hinder bodys, 7 legs...it was hurt in y. coming into y. world, and lived only 3 hours. The person was desired to leave it, that a figure of it might be taken by Mr. Hunt." The image was presented at the subsequent Society meeting, 5 June 1700: "Mr Hunt brought the draught of the monstrous puppy, which was very well approved of"

Original: ink on paper. 1700
