1833 Reverend William Buckland fossils Featured Thomas Phillips Print

1833 Reverend William Buckland fossils

"The Reverend William Buckland D.D. F.R.S. Canon of Christ Church and Professor of Geology and Mineralogy in the University of Oxford 1833" Painted by Thomas Phillips and Mezzotint engraved by Samuel Cousins in 1833. Shown with some of his UK finds - holding the skull of cave hyaena, with nautiloid fossil (flat) and Ammonites (Arietites) bucklandi fossil. Cave cross section diagram for teaching in background. Buckland was an influential paleontologist who described science's first dinosaur. His works brought the prehistoric world into prominence in Britain. He believed he had found evidence of the flood. He was quite eccentric, and some like Darwin, found him a little too keen on celebrity. He was a good teacher, his own academic work improved by consulting William Conybeare. A tuberculous growth at the base of the skull reputedly caused madness in later life
