Description

The bestiary is on folios 1r-100r.

"...the large, careless pictures in this manuscript look like poor relations of those found in Copenhagen, Kongelige Bibliotek Gl. Kgl. 1633 4 (a Second Family manuscript)." - Medieval Latin and French Bestiaries (Chapel Hill, 1962) McCulloch, p.39

"It is a bestiary of the fifteenth century based on the De Proprietatibus Rerum of Bartholomaeus Anglicus, and being late, displays some variations from the earlier versions." - An Account of the Mermecoleon or Ant-lion (1923) Druce, p. 350
