Theobaldus, Willis Barnstone, trans.

A metrical Latin translation of 13 sections of the Physiologus created in the 11th century by a little known clergyman variously known as Theobaldus or Thetbaldus. This modern version of the bestiary which was later translated into Anglo-Saxon in the 13th century contains Theobaldus' original Latin text together with an English verse translation by Willis Barnstone amplified by Pozzatti's striking and energetic lithographs.
