Monstrorum Historia (A History of Monsters), 1642
Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522 — 1605) was an Italian naturalist and physician, also known as Ulysses Aldrovandi, or simply as Aldrovandus. He 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. This sort of juxtaposition was common at the time, since there was not as yet a distinction between the literary and the scientific.
Jesus! This looks like people on the bus!
Man, eye, cut-outs from John Banister: Anatomical tables. Table 11 & 12, c.1580
Glasgow University Library, Special Collections, Ms Hunter 364 (V.1.1)In the final two pieces from the Anatomical Tables, the eleventh shows the anterior (front) veins and the twelfth shows the internal organs by means of a movable atlas (damaged). The eleventh and twelfth tables are, however, reversed. The paintings from John Banister: Anatomical tables are part of the Hunterian Collection in the Special Collections Department at Glasgow University Library. Dr William Hunter (1718-83), anatomist, teacher of medicine, Physician Extraordinary to Queen Charlotte, bequeathed his library (some 10,000 volumes) and other collections (including anatomical specimens) to Glasgow University where he had studied. They arrived in Glasgow in 1807.
