Description

Das Buch der Natur of Konrad von Megenberg. This is one of the oldest existing manuscript copies of this text. Not illustrated.

"The parchment codex Cgm 38 was probably created during the lifetime of the author. The text was written down by two scribes and the manuscript furnished with red and blue initials with rich fleuronnée décor at the beginning of the chapters. Patron was likely the knight Stefan von Preckendorf. - Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Peter Czoik, 2016)
