A rich archive of woodcuts of real and imaginative beasts by some of the finests artists of their eras, compiled by a noted physician, naturalist and man of the Renaissance, Conrad Gesner (1546 - 1565). Features 308 permission-free images of mammals, insects, birds, and sea life as well as stunningly conceived and masterfully executed images of fanciful beasts. A fertile source of inspiration for artists, designers and craftworkers; fascinating, vintage views of the natural world for anyone interested in wildlife.
Unusual, anthropomorphic images of monkeys, spiders, ducks, dogs and cats, sea-creatures of many kinds, butterflies and hundreds more real beasts, with the addition of plenty of imaginary creatures such as the manticora and the "Sea-bass with the human face", and other half-understood creatures designed and interpreted from travellers tales, fakes and stories.
