A facsimile of a printed version (1472 or 1474) of the Physiologus of Theobaldus followed by an English translation. Includes commentary on Theobaldus and his possible role as Abbot of Monte Cassino, along with b & w plates of photographs of the abbey and cathedral.
Also presented in an appendix is another Physiologus, "recently discovered" (in 1928) at the Archives of the Chapter of Fano (Codex 5, mid 13th century). This is compared chapter by chapter with the 1492 printed edition and the Migne, Tom. 171 Physiologus manuscript of about 1173.
