From Volume One, Issue One of Alcheringa, the journal of ethnopoetics, originally published 1970. Available online at: http://www.ethnopoetics.com/1/1.html
The earliest illustration of Sunfish, presumably Mola mola, from A) Rondelet in 1554 and B) Gesner in 1558. Considering this is from the era of terrible walruses, the fact that they’re at all recognizable is pretty amazing.
