Amongst our collections is an invitation to a dinner party with a difference....
 
.wh 81.jpg
The dinner was held by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, a sculptor with an interest in Natural History. In 1852 Hawkins had been appointed to build authentic models of prehistoric animals to be displayed in the grounds of Crystal Palace. With advice from Professor Richard Owen on the anatomy of the creatures, Hawkins built life size replicas of animals such as the Pleisiosaurus, Ichthyosaurus, Megalosaurus and the Iguanodon.
 
Waterhouse 95.jpg
These models were to become influential in the popularisation of palaeontology, and in particular of dinosaurs.  Although the models are now known to be scientifically inaccurate, at the time they were the most realistic representations of dinosaurs ever produced.
 
To celebrate the forthcoming opening of the exhibition, Hawkins hosted a dinner for Owen and twenty prominent scientists of the day.  The dinner took place on New Years Eve 1853 inside the almost complete shell of the Iguanodon.  The invitation, inscribed on the wing of a Pterodactyl asks for the guest’s “Company at Dinner in the Iguanodon”.
 
The Iguanodon that served as a party venue, along with the other prehistoric animals recreated by Hawkins were officially unveiled to the public on 10 June 1854 when the park opened to 40 000 visitors. To this day they are still enjoyed by many in their original home in Crystal Palace Park.

Once again the Library has had great pleasure in being part of the Young Graduates for Museums and Galleries programme (YGMG).

YGMG open day-016-27072011.jpg

 

The scheme is now in its seventh year, and targets talented and gifted students (16-18 years of age) from inner London, giving them the opportunity to see behind the scenes of some of the major museums and galleries in London. Those involved are: the Natural History Museum, Tate, British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum.

The students are given tours by staff, with the opportunity to see the collections and learn what is involved in working in these different organisations. The idea is to enthuse and stimulate interest in working in the fields of sciences, art and history.

Students are then given the opportunity to work at one of the organisations on an internship during the summer holidays. The Library hosted a total of 25 students, who were shown a display of some of the Library's rare books and manuscripts, and given a talk by Lisa Di Tommaso (Assistant Librarian, Earth Sciences).

 

It is always really interesting to see the reactions of the students, many of whom have never used such primary sources before and are amazed to see books that are over 350 years old!
