A Medieval Bestiary

J. L. Schrader, ed.

New York: Metropolitan Museum Art, 1986; Series: Metropolitan Museum Of Art Bulletin, XLIV, 1

"The collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art abound in depictions of animals - chiseled in stone, woven in tapestries, painted on glass or wood, hammered in silver, and drawn and painted on the pages of manuscripts. [This] bestiary ... has been assembled from this rich storehouse by J. L. Schrader, former Curator of The Cloisters, who has also provided the very informative and engaging introduction. Many of the animals are drawn from the art of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries..." - director's note
