The British doctor and zoologist Thomas Bell lived from 1792 to 1880. In 1824 he founded the Zoological Journal , of which a total of 5 volumes had been published by 1835. It was there that he published his first descriptions of new reptile species such as the three-lined hinge turtle and the marine iguana from the Galápagos Islands. With a monograph, originally laid out on 8 volumes and illustrated with 40 plates by James de Carle Sowerby and Edwars Lear, from 1832 to 1836 he attempted all known living and extinct turtles in to summarize a work. In 1836 he became Professor of Zoology at King's College London, a position he held until his death.
