Caption: Silhouette first produced by Auguste Edouart of "William Buckland and his Wife and Son Frank, Examining Buckland's Natural History Collection. The original is in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This copy is composited from a copy in "The Life of William Buckland" by his daughter Mrs. Gordon (1894). It shows the famous early palaeontologist William Buckland with a range of specimens including (hanging) an Irish Elk skull, in his hand a hyaena skull, on the table an ichthyosaur skull. Baby Frank is next to an elephant or mammoth skull. His wife Mary (ne Moreland) holds nautiloids. Buckland's Christ Church household was famously strange, he kept exotic animals including Hyaenas and a free range black bear called Tiglath Pileser who would raid local sweet shops, Frank - (Francis) Buckland went on to be a famously eccentric naturalist in his own right.
