James Parkinson (1755-1824) was an English surgeon, apothecary, geologist and palaeontologist. Try saying that quickly!
This interesting man discovered Parkinson's disease and was a founder of the Geological Society of London.
In 1804, Parkinson created the first major British work about fossils. He called it "Organic Remains of a Former World". It was a series of letters and hand coloured engravings about fossils.
His first letter describes a "cabinet of curiosities" which included "bones of giants...fairies night caps... and innumerable frozen thunderbolts."
Here are some of the engravings for you to choose from. They are original antiques from 1804 and are rare.
