Caption

A mole, (Talpa europaea), woodcut with orignal hand colouring from Conrad Gesner "Icones Animalium" 1560. Before the advent of Linnaeus' binomial latin taxonomic nomenclature such multiple language translations, preferably with an illustration, were required to keep scholars on the same page with regards the animal they were considering. Even so, confusion could arise (ref auroch and bison by Gesner).
