 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 203-217) and index. Bibliographical and critical edition of Paré's Monstres et Prodiges. The initial section reviews the history and sources of the text, revealing Céard's unparalleled mastery of 16th century literature related to teratology. Paré's text is based upon the chapter in the 1585 French edition of the collected works, the last published during Paré's lifetime. That chapter is compared on a word-for-word basis with all previous French editions, with extensive annotation. The 77 woodcuts from this section of the 1585 edition of Paré's works are also reproduced. Other illustrations include a reproduction of the title page of the 1573 first edition of this work, and 4 woodcuts from other books on monsters published later in the 16th century. The introduction provides insight into the background and bibliographic history of this work, and a glossary of obsolete French words used in the text. Malgaigne's otherwise excellent edition of Paré's collected works is criticized for its treatment of this chapter.
