Visboeck by Adriaen Coenen

The Visboeck by Adriaen Coenen (1514-1587) is a manuscript from 1579 about sea creatures. It is about fish, but also about animals and people who have a close connection with the sea (for example, the Inuit from Greenland).  Coenen gives a description of the animals and people, with as many characteristics as possible. He provides this information with colourful illustrations, which are also very accurate.
