Vertebrae of Squalus maximus [Basking shark]

Plate 5 from the paper "On the nature of the intervertebral substance in fish and quadrupeds", by Everard Home, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol.99 (1809), pp.177-187. A longitudinal section of one of the intervertebral joints of the squalus maximus, after the fluid had been evacuated, and the parts had been steeped in water. According to a later account by Everard Home, the basking shark [Cetorhinus maximus] was caught at Hastings, purchased by Colonel Bothwell and examined by William Clift before parts of it were brought to London. Not signed. Royal Society stamp verso and an inscription "Plate V. Next plate to Mr Troughton's last."

Original: watercolour on paper. 1809
