"This work, like that of Gesner, had great influence on the study of natural history up to the end of the 17th century .. The value of Aldrovandi's ornithology is enhanced by its many original illustrations, which are often good and are generally better than Gesner's .. No effort or expense was spared in obtaining the pictorial material on which, and on the provision of a large collection, Aldrovandi spent all his fortune" (Anker).
