Eschmeyer's Catalog of Fishes Reference Record:

Gesner, C.  1558 [ref. 30350]
Historiæ animalium liber IIII, qui est de piscium et aquatilium animantium natura. Cvm iconibvs singvlorvm ad vivvm expressis fere omnib. DCCVI. C. Froschover, Tiburi [Zürich]. i-xx + 1-1297. [Author's name spelled Conradus Gesnerus. See Pyle 2000 [ref. 38222] on possible spelling of author's name as Gessner due to possible confusion with Latin version of name; we here retain the spelling Gesner, due to general inconsistency of spellings at the time.]
