Conrad Gessner [1516-1565] has been called the greatest naturalist of his times, 'the father of bibliography' and the 'father of zoology'. His writings, the first large-scale illustrated works on zoology, became standard reference works throughout Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. He employed eminent artists of the day to ensure that his woodcuts were as scientifically accurate as possible. These illustrations were heavily plagiarised for the next two hundred years.
