Description

There is an incomplete bestiary on folio 11r-22r.

Begins Hic inc. tractatus de nominibus bestiarum et earum natura. Et dicitur liber bestiarius ... Leo fortissimus bestiarum ad nullius pauet occursum and ends per hominem mors serpentis. Dicto de bestiis uolatilibus et serpentibus modo dicendum est de membris hominum et eorum natura. Natura dicta eo quod nasci aliquid faciat.

There is also a fragment from Hrabanus Maurus De naturis rerum on folio 10r.
