Description

Contains an illustrated copy of the Physiologus. The first twelve chapters are illustrated with fifteen drawings (caldrius has two, the ant has three). The illustrations follow the chapter they illustrate; captions on the images make it clear what they represent. Unlike most bestiary illustrations, these also show the text's moralization in some form. Spaces left for illustration after the other chapters remain unfilled. The text (in 36 chapters) is very similar to that of the Physiologus B version. This is the manuscript designated "A" in the Mélanges d'archéologie, d'histoire et de littérature, rédigés ou recueillis (Paris, 1847-1856) Cahier and Martin edition.
