Guillaume Rondelet was a Professor of Medicine and Chancellor at the University of Montpellier in the 16th century. He published his Libri de piscibus marinis in 1554. While the title suggests it was a work dedicated to fish, Rondelet also included many other marine creatures.

The work includes many woodcut illustrations such as these images of star fish. [ID: TypFL.B54BR]
