Micrographia is a historic book by Robert Hooke, detailing the then thirty-year-old Hooke's observations through various lenses. Published in September 1665, the first major publication of the Royal Society, it was the first scientific best-seller, inspiring a wide public interest in the new science of microscopy. It is also notable for coining the biological term cell. Micropgrahia, das 1665 veröffentlichte Hauptwerk von Robert Hooke, war die erste größere Veröffentlichung der Royal Society und ein Bestseller der damaligen Wissenschaftsliteratur. Mit den Zeichnungen seiner Beobachtungen durch verschiedene Linsen eröffnete Hooke Einblicke in den bis dahin weitgehend unbekannten Mikrokosmos und verhalf der Mikroskopie zum Duchbruch. Für die in Kork beobachteten Hohlräume prägte er den biologischen Begriff cell für "Zelle".
