Description

An illustrated bestiary, partly based on the Etymologiae of Isidore of Seville.

Begins (rubric): 'De natura leonis, bestiarum seu animaliam regis. (text): Etenim Iacob benedicens ... Physiologus dicit tres res.' Ends with a chapter on the wolf (de lupo rapaci): 'Cerberus nostro gaudens iteritu.'

Medieval Latin and French Bestiaries (Chapel Hill, 1962) McCulloch (p.29) notes that the manuscript "adds [a] chapter on Lupus after Mermecolion".
