THE GRAND MEDIEVAL BESTIARY: Animals in Illuminated Manuscripts
This magnificent volume explores the complex and fascinating iconography of the individual creatures most frequently depicted by medieval miniaturists. It features essays on 100 animals, arranged in alphabetical order by their Latin names from the alauda, or lark, to the vultur, whose taste for carrion made it a symbol of the sinner who indulges in worldly pleasures. Well illustrated, most in color.
