About This Item

(Elberfeld (now Wuppertal),: Sam. Lueas,, 1838.. [ii], 31, [i, blank]; [28, blank] pp. 8vo (13,5 x 22 cm.). Contemporary marbled boards, edges red. ¶ Very rare, only 5 copies in the WorldCat. Fuhlrott "Obtained a doctorate from Bonn (1830); became a science teacher at Elberfeld, subsequently vice-director of the Realschule. Won modest recognition as a naturalist. In 1856, he received fossilized bones found by quarry workers in Felfhofer cave of the Neander Valley; Fohlrott identified them as "Homo neanderthalensis", but reaction to his discovery was hostile, and extensive controversy ensued. It was not until after his death and the discovery of fossil men at Spy (Belgium), and Gibraltar that opposition to the notion of Neanderthal man was finally silenced"(DSB).
