Etching and engraving, with large margins. Plate 127 x 89mm. 5 x 3½".
Conrad Gessner (1516-1565) was a Swiss naturalist and bibliographer. His five volume 'Historiae animalium' is considered the beginning of modern zoology. In 1540-1541 he took his degree of doctor in medicine at Basel and then settled at Zürich where he obtained the post of lecturer of physics at the Carolinum, the precursor of the University of Zürich. As a protestant, and due to his 'Historiae animalium' being published during a period of extreme religious tension, Pope Paul IV added the book the Roman Catholic Church's list of prohibited books.

Johann Kaspar Lavater (1741-1801) was a Swiss poet and physiognomist. He was ordained and took Holy Orders in 1769 which he used to try and convert other intellectuals to Christianity, which backfired. His most prominent work, which kept his name alive, was "Physiognomische Fragmente zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe (1775-1778). Goethe fell out with Lavater in 1774 accusing him of superstition and hypocrisy.
