Ulisse Aldrovandi, Monstrorum Historia (History of Monsters) late 1500s, a compendium of monstrous and human hybrid races. Here shown are the Cynocephali, dog-head humans said to inhabit a island in the far East. Not monsters in the sense of inspiring horror or fear; these monstrous races were emblems of and unknown world and God's ability to create wondrous creatures.
