Description
Ambroise Pare, born in France around 1510, was chief surgeon to both Charles IX and Henri III. In one of the first attempts to explain birth defects, Pare produced On Monsters and Marvels, an illustrated encyclopedia of curiosities, of monstrous human and animal births, bizarre beasts, and natural phenomena.

"Pare teaches us that the Renaissance scientist saw freaks and oddities of nature as an interplay of the divine and the demonic". -- Los Angeles Times Book Review
