Catalogue Note

This work grew out of Huxley's dispute with Richard Owen's claim that man's brain differed qualitatively from those of all other mammals: "Through a series of dissections of primate brains, Huxley disproved Owen's assertions that only man's brain possessed a Hippocampus minor, and demonstrated that the differences between men and apes were smaller than those between apes and lower primates" (Norman).
