Monstrorum Historia by Ulisse Aldrovandi - Kunstkabinett

Monstrorum Historia (A History of Monsters), 1642  Ulisse Aldrovandi was an Italian naturalist and physician who helped lead the Renaissance movement that placed a renewed emphasis on the study of nature.  One of the many books he wrote was Monstrorum Historia (“A History of Monsters”), a compendium of reported human and animal monstrosities. The book included accounts not only of monstrous natural births but also of entirely imaginary, extremely far-fetched monsters.
