|Title||Paper, 'Preliminary note on the fossil remains of a Chelonian reptile, Ceratochelys sthenurus [Meiolania], from Lord Howe's Island, Australia' by Thomas H [Henry] Huxley|
|Description||Huxley writes: 'The interesting remains of which I propose to give a brief notice in the present communication, are contained in a friable sandstone (apparently formed of concreted blown sand), and they have a very recent appearance. The age of the deposit in which they are found is unknown, but it is probably quaternary.'|
