Richard Owen F.R.S. (1804 92) was a controversial and influential palaeontologist and anatomist. Owen studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and at Londons St Bartholomews Hospital. He grew interested in anatomical research, and after qualifying he became assistant conservator in the museum of the Royal College of Surgeons, and then superintendent of natural history in the British Museum.

He quickly became an authority on comparative anatomy and palaeontology, coining the term dinosaur and founding the Natural History Museum. He was also a fierce critic of Darwins theory of evolution by natural selection, and engaged in a long and bitter argument with Darwins Bulldog, Thomas Huxley.

Published between 1866 and 1868, this highly illustrated three-volume set comprises a thorough overview of vertebrate anatomy. Volume 1 deals with cold-blooded vertebrates such as fish and reptiles, Volume 2 birds, and Volume 3 mammals.
