Description

Contains a bestiary and other texts. There are 103 miniatures, decorated initials with border decoration, and penwork initials, some in gold, with pen-flourishes. The bestiary is only partly illustrated (after f. 44r no space for miniatures was left open). The beast illustrations have a gold border; many also have gold stars in the sky. The perspective in many of the pictures is odd, with some beasts appearing in the foreground but behind background trees, and other perspective anomalies.

Provenance: G. Guglielmetti (16th century). G. de Cananga (17th century).
