At the time of his death, Aldrovandus had only published four folio volumes, leaving his other works to be completed by collaborators who are named on the title pages.

Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation....' (Carlo Castellani, DSB I, p. 110). The admirable cuts are largely by Cristoforo Coriolano after Lorenzo Bennini, the Florentine court painter Giacomo Ligozzi, and Cornelius Swinte of Frankfurt.
