Debra Hassig

in L. A. J. Houwen, ed., Animals and the Symbolic in Mediaeval Art and Literature (Mediaevalia Groningana, 20), Groningen: Egbert Forsten, 1997, 171-188

Addresses, by focusing on the Queen Mary Psalter and the Isabella Psalter, how the bestiary was reduced from an integrally luxury manuscript to marginalia appended to other types of books, and how it functioned in this context.
