Edward Smith Stanley, 13th Earl of Derby (1775-1851) was one of the most prominent naturalists and collectors of his day. This book accompanied the exhibition to mark the 150th anniversary of the death of the Earl, whose outstanding zoological collections founded Liverpool Museum. Copiously illustrated, this book surveys the Earl's zoological collections, including portraits and photographs of seashells, birds, plants and mammals, as well as watercolours by Edward Lear, many drawn from Lord Derby's specimens or from living animals in his menagerie at Knowsley Hall.
