2 +134 + 2 pages, 141 illustrations engraved in wood. The pages of the book are browned (like all known copies) but this does not affect the reading, without tears, without woodworms. The spine has been reinforced.
The author's name was erased on the cover page (see photos) as at the time of the publication of Historiae animalium there were deep religious tensions. Under the pontificate of Pope Paul IV it was believed that the religious convictions of an author contaminated all his writings and therefore his work was placed on the index since Gesner was Protestant.
