Birds in Medieval Manuscripts
New York: Schocken Books, 1982
"The illuminations in many medieval manuscripts include descriptions of birds, but this is the first book to be published about them. The author surveys examples drawn from many different manuscripts ranging in time from 700 AD to the Renaissance and discusses them both from the art historian's and the zoologit's point of view. 48 importent examples are reproduced in full colour, each with its own discussion, while an extended introduction to the subject includes a further 60 monochrome illustrations. Many of the illustrations are being published here for the first time. The author is a professional zoologist." - publisher
