A classical teratological work Originally published in 1616 (without illustrations), Liceti's treatise contains both genuine and imaginary cases of human and animal deformities, and was still in use by medical professionals in the nineteenth century. Licetus was professor at the universities of Pisa, Padova and Bologna and a "not insignificant philosopher and physicist" (Hirsch-H. III, 775). "In diesem Sammelwerk der Missbildungen, welches zu den bekanntesten und berühmtesten seiner Art gehört und in dem sich auf sauberen und ungewöhnlich schönen Kupferstichen die meisten der uns aus früheren Zeiten bekannten Missbildungen finden, sind auch die meisten der Abbildungen vorhanden, welche wir z. B. aus Aldrovandus, Paré und vielen anderen nachweisen können" (Goldschmid)..
