Description

"This is a much more modestly produced Second Family bestiary. Although the text is standard, it contains innumerable errors of transcription, and of the 112 framed miniatures some are eccentric and others display a distinctly comic character... The illustrations employ no gold and are painted in brown, green and red on alternately blue and crimson backgrounds." - Medieval Beasts (New York, 1990) Payne, p.15

The bestiary is on folios 1r-44r.
