Teleosaurs and hylaeosaur
Coastal landscape of the middle Jurassic with a reconstruction of live and dead teleosaurs and a hylaeosaurus.
Plate 18 from the book The world before the deluge, by Louis Figuier, newly edited and revised by H. W. Bristow (Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, London, 1872).
Plate not signed. The image is numbered and captioned below: ‘XVIII. – Ideal Landscape of the Middle Oolitic Period.’
The accompanying text (pp.259-260) states: ‘The Teleosaurus cadomensis is represented on the opposite page (PLATE XVIII.) after the sketch of M. E. Deslongchamps, carrying from the sea in its mouth a Geoteuthis, a species of Calamary of the Oolitic epoch. This creature was coated with a cuirass both on the back and belly…a dead one is floating on its back in shallow water, leaving the ventral cuirass exposed. Behind the Teleosaurus cadomensis in the engraving, another Saurian, the Hylaeosaurus, is represented, which makes its appearance in the Cretaceous epoch. We have here adopted the restoration which has been so ably executed by Mr. Waterhouse Hawkins, at the Crystal Palace, Sydenham.’
Unknown artist, after Eugène Eudes-Deslongchamps and Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins.
