From Baron Cuvier’s The Animal Kingdom.

Artist:

Baron Cuvier 1769-1832

A pioneer in the science of comparative anatomy, he originated a system of zoological classification that comprised four phyla based on differences in structure of the skeleton and organs. His reconstruction of the soft parts of fossils deduced from their skeletal remains greatly advanced the science of paleontology. The flying reptile pterodactyl was identified and named by Cuvier. He rejected the theory of evolution in favor of castastrophism Cuvier held various high posts in the government and did much to develop higher education in France.
