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.

Monstrum Marinum rudimenta habitus Episcopi referens. Woodcut illustration from Aldrovandi's 'History of Monsters'. This book was first published in 1642. Ulissi Aldrovandi (Aldrovandus) (1552-1605) had degrees in law, philosophy and medicine. He was a cousin of the Pope. He also spent almost a year in confinement in Rome while fighting a heresy charge. At this time he began to collect natural history specimens. (no, I didn't make this up!)
