Artist's Description

Collection of Conrad Gessner (1516-1565), Swiss naturalist. This scene shows people working in his natural history collection in Zurich, Switzerland. Stuffed animals are seen around the room, and careful drawings are being made to record anatomical details. Gessner graduated from Basel University, Switzerland in 1541. He later compiled a comprehensive survey (Historiae animalium) of the animal kingdom. This multi- volume survey presented known facts, rather than myths, about the animal kingdom. Gessner also wrote a major bibliographical work on Latin, Greek and Hebrew writers. He also wrote a book on fossils. Gessner died of the plague in 1565. At the time, he was trying to compile a survey of the plant kingdom comparable to Historiae animalium. Engraving from the 1875 edition of Vies des Savants Illustres.

About

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
