"Francis Trevelyan Buckland (17 December 1826-19 December 1880) was an English surgeon, zoologist, popular author and natural historian." . Though observant, he was not always strictly scientific in his methods and modes of expression. All the same, Darwin used some of his material from Land and Water in the Descent of Man, an honour which Buckland did not appreciate, since he was a strong opponent of Darwinism. Frank Buckland founded the Museum of Economic Fish Culture in South Kensington in 1865, the only remaining contents of which are held by the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall.
