From "The Anniversary of the Literary Fun 1836" by Thomas Hood, published by Baily and Co, Cornhill. The reputation of academics for absent-mindedness, eccentricity, and absorption in their books, goes back a long way. The theme of the home menagerie may have developed due to the exploits of eccentric naturalists such a geologist William Buckland who was famous for his Christ's College home menagerie (which at one point included a free range bear called Tiglath Pileser).
