William Buckland (1784-1856), British geologist, giving a lecture on fossils in 1823. The inscription at bottom gives his name (in Latin) and states that he is Fellow of the Royal Society, a minister, and Professor of Geology at the University of Oxford. The fossils and artworks include mammoths, hyenas, ammonites, and marine reptiles. In the background is a copy of Greenough's Geological Map; this was published in 1819 by the English geologist George Bellas Greenough (1778-1855). At centre left is a depiction of the cave of Gailenreuth, in Germany, where fossils had been found.
