Five Handed Siamese Twins

Unknown year and author. However, something known – this image is from ‘Philosophical Transactions’, at the Royal Society of London. I found it in the Wellcome Library under the keyword ‘abnormalities’.

Human Production (1810) By Nicolas Regnault

A part of a ‘monstrous human being’ – rude! It looks like growths of some sort, attached to the back of a persons head. Hopefully it isn’t the front, poor thing.

Cat Ladies (1811) By Thomas Rowlandson

These ladies are called ‘Catamaran’, but I found no details on what that means. It is alternatively called ‘Old Maid’s Nursery’. So basically, this image is making fun of unwed adult women – who tend to have various fur babies.
