Buckland was one of the era’s most beloved writers, and his books went into numerous editions from the 1850s through the early 1900s. Ever since then, Buckland has been the best-kept secret of aficionados of Victorian weirdness. Rescued after a century of obscurity, and culled from thousands of pages of Buckland’s eyewitness accounts, Curious Men brings back to life eighteen tales from one of the most curious men of all.
