About this book

Translated and annotated by Kenneth F Kitchell Jr., and Irven Michael Resnick
Dating from the mid-thirteenth century, Albert the Great's monumental treatise on living things, their characteristics, and their place in the natural order stands as one of the most valuable contributions to the development of natural history, ranking in importance with the writings of Aristotle and Linnaeus. Yet until now - more than seven hundred years after his death - Albert's De Animalibus has never been completely translated from the original Latin. Drawing on all available sources Kitchell and Resnick present the first complete, fully annotated translation of this magisterial work.
